The RN to BSN program is designed to allow nurses to attend school while they continue working.
Why a Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Nurses with a bachelor of science degree in nursing have professional benefits unavailable to registered nurses with lower credentials. Higher salaries are one advantage, but so is professional advancement. A BSN can help nurses become leaders in the profession and assume managerial positions within healthcare organizations.

Clinical experiences are a critical component of the LWC Online RN BSN program. In our clinical courses, students are provided the opportunity to build upon current learned associate degree knowledge and skills by including the application of newly acquired knowledge and skills from the RN BSN curriculum. Our clinical courses (with the exception of NURN 3024 Comprehensive Health Assessment) require the nurse to assume the leadership role in developing and implementing evidenced-based practice projects which focus on improving patient outcomes and/or patient safety. It is the student's responsibility to:
Maintain an active unencumbered Registered Nurse (RN) license in the state where any clinical experiences are completed.
Maintain an active unencumbered Registered Nurse (RN) license throughout the program.
Meet all clinical compliance requirements at the practice facility.
Students outside of Kentucky or Tennessee
Students in an online program who are not residents of Kentucky or Tennessee will need to check with their state's board of nursing to verify that the board of nursing accepts out of state post-licensure programs not approved in their state.
