RN/BSN Advanced Placement Option

BSNIf you are a registered nurse who is interested in a baccalaureate program in nursing, The W's College of Nursing & Speech-Language Pathology has an Advanced Placement Option that is designed just for you. In order to meet the needs of the working registered nurse we have adopted two flexible options:

  1. Partial Distance Option: combination of distance learning and classroom setting. During first semester the student attends class one day every other week ; second and third semesters the student attends class one day every three weeks.
  2. Total Distance Option: All course requirements are communicated via computer based instruction. The student is not required to attend class.
