You’re an RN. You make a positive difference every day in the lives of your patients and those who love them. Your passion and nursing skill have brought you a long way in your career, but there’s something more that you want and need to gain additional advancement opportunities: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

If you would like to take your career to the next level, consider our online RN to BSN program. This program is offered totally online. Many of the students in this online program are working full time as nurses, so the assignments are flexible enough to work around your shift schedule. Completion of your BSN allows many nurses to fill leadership positions and/or seek advanced degree work for even greater career opportunity.

Each applicant to the RN to BSN track is reviewed individually and guided to prevent the repetition of previous coursework. The AUM faculty members teaching online have been prepared according to the highest quality standards for online education. An advisor maintains contact with students throughout their progression in the program to facilitate access to classes and other needs. Access to an advisor who knows you and your program plans is one of the unique aspects of the AUM experience.

The BSN degree program at Auburn University at Montgomery is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing.If you are not an RN but are interested in a traditional nursing bachelor’s degree program, you may be interested in our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

Students must first apply to AUM for admission. Once admitted to the university, then please complete the Rn to BSN Application.
