More Applause for the RN to BSN Program
UVA's RN to BSN program - a two-year path for working nurses to earn the personal, professional, and financial benefits a BSN brings - has again earned applause from a national nursing web site poll.
For the 2022-23 academic year, RNtoMSN.org ranked UVA's RN to BSN No. 4 in the nation, up from No. 10 in 2020. RNtoMSN.org "analyzes every university with online programs for academic reputation, student completions, debt and earnings data, competitive admissions," and assessed more than 500 schools offering online RN to BSN programs.
RNtoBSN.org is a project of Degree Prospects, an organization that has created online tools for nursing students since 2008.
UVA's RN to BSN is a two-year, part-time program designed for working nurses now offered in three sites across Virginia: Charlottesville, Fairfax, and Richmond. Though roughly two-thirds of the program is conducted online, students are required to attend monthly classes on-site and in-person during their tenure at UVA.
The RN to BSN program was also applauded earlier this spring when Registerednursing.org, a nursing advocacy organization, released its "Best Online Rn to BSN programs in Virginia. It ranked the School's program No. 2 in the state based on factors including how well a program supports students during school, as they process toward licensure, and beyond.
