A BSN degree prepares students to work in all health care settings and provides the greatest opportunity for advancement in today's nursing field. Robert Morris University's BSN degree is a 120-credit program designed to meet each student's specific needs.
The nursing degree program at RMU builds on the natural and behavioral sciences, integrating liberal arts and professional courses into a cohesive program. Students develop strong technical skills, as well as the clinical judgment and critical thinking necessary to succeed in today's rapidly changing health care system. Clinical experiences are conducted in community, hospital and international settings.
The program has a unique focus on teamwork, communications, global perspective and technology in addition to strong clinical skills, and preparation for the licensing exam to become a registered nurse. In 2015, our NCLEX licensure pass rate for first-time test takers exceeded the national and state average.
All students will utilize point-of-care access to information in a state-of-art facility designed for mobile, web and cloud. Students learn to care for patients in nationally recognized clinical facilities as well as in RMU's Regional Research and Innovation in Simulation Education (RISE) Center. Students also have the opportunity to travel internationally to better understand global health issues.
The traditional track is intended for high school graduates without a college degree. Although many students apply immediately after high school, the traditional BSN track also welcomes adult learners as well as transfer students.Course Map
