George Fox University’s RN to BSN degree-completion program is designed for registered nurses who wish to enhance their resumes, further their education and advance their careers as leaders in the profession. The part-time program combines personal face-to-face monthly seminars with online learning.

According to a 2016 American Association of Critical-Care Nurses survey, 54 percent of hospitals and other healthcare settings are requiring new hires to have a bachelor’s degree in nursing (up 6 percentage points since 2015), while 98 percent of employers are expressing a strong preference for BSN program graduates. The survey incorporated completed responses from 576 schools of nursing.
