“I had one year when my community service hours were due while I was on active duty at my Army hospital. But my [Ball State] instructor was flexible and allowed me to complete my clinical time during my non-duty hours.” Read her story.

Join a nursing community that cares for you

Giving care is second nature if you’re a nurse. It’s what you do and probably part of your passion. But what if you forget to care for yourself? What if you’re putting professional opportunity on hold? What if you’re not completing your goal of providing the most informed nursing care possible?

Preparing for Today's Health Care Landscape

Completing your bachelor’s in nursing means keeping up with the shift from hospital-centered care to community-based primary health care. It means having a greater knowledge of health promotion and disease prevention in order to help individuals, groups, and communities find improved levels of wellness. It means moving from technical nursing practice to professional nursing practice. It means more career opportunities and a welcome salary increase.

And it means completing the task that you began when you earned your associate degree.

With our online RN-to-BS completion track, you can make these strides without setting your feet on campus—but you are always invited to join us here to celebrate your achievement on graduation day!
