BS Degree Completion
The Maria College’s RN – BS Degree in Nursing Completion Program is designed for licensed registered nurses who wish to continue their education for professional and personal development. It prepares nurses who will utilize evidence for practice decisions to adapt to a changing healthcare delivery system, to care for individuals, families, and communities and to function in Leadership positions.
Developing nursing leaders
The program facilitates the development of nurse leaders who integrate theory from nursing, humanities and biological and social sciences to transform the associate degree Registered Nurse to the baccalaureate prepared nurse. Graduates will be qualified to pursue advanced level professional and educational opportunities.
Full- and part-time options
You can pursue the BS degree on a full- or part-time basis. Classes are offered on the Maria College campus and in collaboration with area healthcare institutions.
