Delivered with Care—Anywhere: Emmanuel’s RN-to-BSN Program Goes Fully Online

A leader in nursing education for more than 40 years, Emmanuel College recently announced that its Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (BSN) for Registered Nurses (RNs) has transitioned its curriculum to a fully online format. The shift in delivery method will further bolster the College’s ability to equip for the ever-changing healthcare industry nurses who possess a thorough education, depth in experience and certifiable credentials.

The emphasis on an online format also offers the busy nursing professional the convenience of a flexible course schedule backed by the community of support for which Emmanuel College is known.

"We are thrilled to be transitioning the RN-to-BSN program online," says Diane Shea, Associate Dean of Nursing and Professor of Nursing Practice. "A diverse and inclusive learning community that reflects the patient populations we serve has long been a hallmark of an Emmanuel College education. We look forward to extending our network of students and professionals to more nurses who are seeking their bachelor's degree but may not be in the Boston area."  

Previously offered as a hybrid in-class and online program, the now fully online RN-to-BSN program will no longer require an in-class component on alternating weeks and will instead convene digitally. Though BSN courses will no longer meet in-person, students will continue to benefit from access to the College's academic and career advising resources, facilities and library and study spaces. Additionally, Online RN-to-BSN students have the option to meet with their faculty advisors and instructors in-person if they so choose. Explore Emmanuel's Online RN-to-BSN program here.

What Our Students Are Saying

"It is such a supportive wonderful environment that we were all so blessed to fall into here at Emmanuel. To have professors that not only encouraged us in every way but pushed us beyond our comfort zones and assisted us in reaching heights of learning that were unexpected was truly inspirational. I know my practice has been stimulated and widened as has my outlook on my profession—360 degrees!"
