The RN-BSN program at Spring Arbor University will help you acquire clinical, analytical and professional skills that will equip you to continue in your career journey, while also allowing you the flexibility to continue practicing nursing in your day-to-day life. This program provides new meaning to the idea of being a Christian caregiver, as you will be challenged to pursue the core values of nursing. Students may also choose to enroll in the MSN program upon completion of the BSN. When you graduate, you will find yourself fully prepared as a caregiver to meet all the needs of your patients — both physical and spiritual.
