Program Overview

ASA College’s proposed Bachelor of Science program in RN to BSN is intended for students wanting to advance their careers within the nursing profession. There are many opportunities for nurses with experience and a BSN degree. Traditionally a field that provided a constant number of nursing career opportunities, health care is now growing at an unprecedented rate. Driven by technological developments, rapid advancements in disease prevention and health promotion, increased public awareness of health concerns, and a booming, aging population, this field offers you a wide variety of job openings, ranging from traditional but expanded patient care to health care administration

The RN to BSN is based upon a learner-centered instructional approach and builds upon your prior learning. The program reduces unnecessary repetition to minimize your investment of time and money. It is designed expressly for associate degree RNs who want to further their educational growth and development.
