Charter Oak State College is now accepting applications for its new online RN to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program. Accepted students would begin online classes in August of 2019. Interested candidates can learn more, including Admissions Requirements, by visiting www.CharterOak.edu/rn-to-bsn.
This program joins a portfolio of Charter Oak online healthcare-focused degree programs including a CAHIIM-accredited B.S. in Health Information Management and a B.S. in Health Care Administration.
Ed Klonoski, President, Charter Oak State College said, “Offering career-relevant degree programs that increase an employee’s marketplace value and help employers address skills gaps is Charter Oak’s focus. The U.S. Bureau of Labor estimates a need for 1.1 million new nurses nationwide by 2023.”
The 120-credit program’s core nursing discipline courses have been developed to meet the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Practice (CCNE, 2008) using the Massachusetts Nurse of the Future Core Competencies (MA DHE, 2010,2016) as a curricular framework. Online courses combined with a clinical practice component, will provide students with the opportunity to apply newly acquired knowledge and skills.
