Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
The RN-BSN Completion program is a flexible option for registered nurses who have completed diploma or associate degree programs.
The RN-BSN completion program accommodates learning needs and career goals of the adult learner with minimal repetition of learning experiences. The program supports enhancement and growth through the study of liberal arts and sciences, as well as the study of professional nursing.
Competencies needed by BSN-prepared nurses are emphasized, including leadership and management skills, health promotion, risk reduction, illness and disease management strategies for clients, families, and communities, and health care economics.
Additional skills include effective use of evidence-based proactive protocol to ensure delivery of cost-effective and appropriate care, use of information technology in clinical settings to manage and make clinical decisions, and care-and case-management strategies with enhanced understanding of healthcare economics and policies.
The RN-BSN completion option can be completed through part-time study at extended campuses, online, at Grand Rapids/Muskegon locations, in partnership with various health care systems, and at the University Center at Macomb Community College in Clinton Township.
