Meet these objectives with your online Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree

The Adventist University of Health Sciences (formerly known as Florida Hospital College) online RN to BSN program moves you beyond basic nursing skills to advanced pathophysiology, pharmacology, critical thinking, leadership, and management and research skills, to name a few.

Upon completion of the Adventist University of Health and Sciences RN to BSN* degree program, graduates should be able to:

  • Exhibit ethical principles that demonstrate interactions with patients/clients, healthcare professionals, and the public
  • Combine knowledge from nursing, sciences, and humanities to meet the patient’s/client’s physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual needs
  • Evaluate ethical, legal, economic, and political factors that affect the management of healthcare for individuals, families, and communities
  • Incorporate community resources to meet primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare needs for individuals, families, and communities
  • Utilize critical thinking to resolve healthcare issues
  • Be prepared for a leadership role within one’s scope of practice
  • Evaluate research findings for use in nursing practice
  • Utilize effective communication in the healthcare environment
  • Participate in activities that support the profession of nursing

When you meet these objectives by earning your degree, you have proved you are ready for increased responsibilities and qualified for even more advanced education programs.

*The Baccalaureate degree is Accredited by the (ACEN) Accreditation Commission For Education In Nursing (formerly NLNAC National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission), http://www.acenursing.org/.

    Hello I’m Lexie from Italy and I’m 21. In November I will be graduating in professional nursing from Pisa’s University.
    I would be interested in taking part on program but I don’t know which kinds of procedures should be followed in and which certificates I need to be able to participate.
    Can you help me? I would really love to be one of the team!

    How many credit hours is the RN to BSN program? Do you accept credits from any institution?

    • dbernard says:

      The RN to BSN program requires 67 credit hours for completion. We do accept transfer credits from other regionally accredited schools, as long as the courses are equivalent to our required curriculum. In order to determine which courses transfer, an official transfer credit evaluation would need to be completed. You can speak with a Distance Enrollment Specialist about how to complete this by calling 1-888-768-6276.

    Is there a clinical component to your Rn-BSN online course. How do you assist students in finding a preceptor if they are out of state?

    • jrodriguez says:

      Hi Danielle, While there are no traditional clinicals in the program, there are shadowing and observational assignments that can be completed in the workplace. Preceptorship is required for one class in the program. Please contact your Distance Enrollment Specialist at 1-888-768-6276 for further information.
