Nursing: RN-to-BS

If you're an RN with an associate degree, St. Catherine University offers you a flexible path to advance your career and earn a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree with a nursing major, with:

  • a one-year sequence of upper-level nursing courses
  • credit for your associate degree in nursing and prior experience as an RN
  • convenient courses that blend evening and online meetings

That's only the beginning. In St. Kate's RN-BS Degree Completion option you'll also:

  • develop skills to work across cultures and in teams to improve patient outcomes
  • build meaningful relationships — you'll be supported and mentored as part of a diverse student cohort
  • ground your work in ethics and mindful practice
  • prepare to advance in your current practice or into a new position, pursue graduate study and advanced practice, and secure your future

Open to both women and men

Offered by the College for Applied and Continuing Learning (CACL). As a CACL bachelor's degree completion program, distinct from the University's College for Women, this option is open to both women and men.
