With the increasingly changing healthcare industry, the need for distinguished and skilled nurses has never been more prevalent. Set to start at the end of August 2019, the Norwich online RN to BSN degree completion program will address the specific needs to help nurses enhance their skillset, prepare for a master’s degree, or expand into a different healthcare field.
Similar to Norwich’s other online bachelor programs, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing will allow those accepted into the program to transfer up to 90-semester credits towards their career and choose from several start dates per year for enrollment.
BSN faculty are subject matter experts in the field and all hold master’s degrees. Paulette Thabault, DNP, APRN, JD, FAANP, is a professor and director for the School of Nursing at Norwich University, and she will be the program manager for the online RN-BSN program. She also is an adult nurse practitioner with a focus on obesity treatment at Goodhealth in South Burlington, Vt., and she has lectured in healthcare leadership and policy at the University of Vermont and Northeastern University.
Upon completion of Norwich’s RN-BSN program, those who wish to earn a master’s degree in nursing may fast track into the online Master of Science in Nursing program through an expedited application process.
Norwich University’s master and bachelor nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. To learn more about the program, visit the Bachelor of Science in Nursing page.
