Nursing Degree Program RN-BSN (for current RN license holders)



Overview

Expand your role in nursing, leadership and call to serve others

The School of Nursing at CBU is responsible for the oversight of the online RN-BSN degree program curriculum.

The online Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses degree-completion program increases students' professional knowledge, enhances leadership abilities and sharpens critical thinking skills. The RN to BSN (for current RN license holders)  program is an important step toward reaching your professional goals, whether you plan to continue practicing at the bedside, transition to a new specialization or pursue graduate studies. The theoretical foundation that the nursing program teaches is the "human becoming" theory. This theory adopts quality of life from each person's own perspectives as the goal of nursing practice.  

As Registered Nurses, the next step is to get a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or BSN. Nursing is a career primarily for people who have leadership potential, clinical competency, and a strong commitment to nursing and academic ability. Students earning their  online Bachelor of Science in Nursing are able to go on to pursue careers in nursing where they will be well-prepared and valued for their skills in critical thinking, case management, health promotion and for their ability to practice across a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. 

The School of Nursing is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and accredited by the commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

Consistent with AACN recommendations, CBU’s student outcomes, and the School of Nursing’s mission, upon completion of the RN-BSN nursing program, graduates will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate competent, responsible practice guided by a theoretical perspective of nursing, grounded in a Biblical worldview committed to compassionate service.
  2. Utilize scholarship in the practice of nursing, integrating a wide range of knowledge drawn from sciences, cultures, and societies, within a Biblical perspective.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to function competently as a nursing professional in a wide variety of settings, integrating Christ-centered nursing practice in a global context as a foundation for service.
  4. Transfer academic nursing principles into the dynamic, evolving inter-professional healthcare system.
