About the RN to BSN Program

The professional nursing program at Fisher College is dedicated to the Registered Nurse learner who is committed to acquiring new knowledge and skills for practice. Our graduates will be prepared to face the changing healthcare culture and be leaders in the nursing profession. The nursing program incorporates an approach to learning that recognizes the uniqueness of every adult learner as well as the educational and practice accomplishments each student acquired prior to enrolling in the nursing program.

The curriculum is developed to recognize the RN’s existing knowledge and skills while  simultaneously providing a foundation for new knowledge in informatics and information literacy, healthcare economics, research, population-based practice, and leadership. With this foundation, graduates will be ready to contribute to improved clinical practice outcomes, new care-delivery methodologies, and/or further study in graduate school.
