One of the earliest online nursing programs in a traditional regionally accredited university, the Department of Nursing offers a quality education at an affordable price. Guided by knowledge, learning is facilitated by an academic environment that fosters student engagement and active learning. The program is structured around a tripartite core of evidence-based decision-making, information systems, and cultural competency.

Courses are offered in 8-week sessions to offer students maximum flexibility in progressing through the program. Each semester contains two 8-week sessions. This scheduling enables RN students working full-time to focus on one course at a time within the traditional semester. Alternatively, a student with a part-time work schedule may choose to accelerate their progression by taking three or more courses per traditional semester.
