CAUSES Academics: Bachelor of Science in Nursing

As a registered nurse (RN), you apply your knowledge and skills on a daily basis. Yet, there is always a need to learn more, both in order to provide better health care to your patients and to advance your career in the workplace. In addition, hospitals and other healthcare settings are increasingly seeking and demanding nurses who have enhanced their RN experience with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

After receiving your RN, the University of the District of Columbia is the ideal place to continue on to receive your bachelor’s degree in nursing, and to develop the skills and tools to succeed in today’s modern, complex, and dynamic health care environment.

The RN to BSN program--housed in the University’s unique College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES)— is an 18-month program that offers a rigorous academic and experiential course of study, while providing a flexible schedule to meet the needs of the working professional nurse. Students in the RN to BSN program come from a wide range of backgrounds and are educated to facilitate positive nursing outcomes in a culturally diverse urban population.

The 18-month RN to BSN program consists of junior and senior levels. Students may enter the junior level of the program while completing prerequisite general education courses.

The RN to BSN nursing curriculum at UDC features a recently reinvigorated academic and experiential program of study designed to equip nurses with the knowledge, skills, and values to deliver, manage, and lead nursing care to an array of populations in a variety of settings.
