The goal of EMU RN-BSN in nursing program is to graduate nurses

who have the capacity to develop a personal art of nursing that grows from an excellent knowledge base,

their own personal resources, a sense of the sacred in moments and places

   and a profound sense of respect for all people.

  • Offered in Hybrid and online formats
  • Develops community through a cohort model
  • Capitalizes on the experiences and skills of adult learners
  • Offers General Education courses to meet requirements over and above the required core courses
