Auburn University Montgomery RN to BSN Track
Auburn University Montgomery (AUM) in Montgomery, Alabama offers EARN (Educational Advancement for Registered Nurses), an RN to BSN track is especially designed to meet the needs of registered nurses desiring a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. As is the intent of the RN to BSN concept, the curriculum offers the registered nurse the opportunity to advance their degree without unnecessary repetition of course content. The AUM nursing program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
Within the RN to BSN track, all nursing courses are offered completely in the on-line format for the convenience of working nurses and to enable them to remain in their home community while advancing their degree. Select nursing courses are also offered in a hybrid format for those that elect to attend classes on campus. Hybrid classes meet on Thursdays once a month. The Web-based nursing format is accessible anytime and from anywhere and is designed for completion in one calendar year of full-time study. Students are admitted to the AUM EARN program in summer semester each year with an April 1 application deadline. Clinical experiences and hours are independently structured and vary according to course outcomes and RN to BSN students may complete any clinical-related activities in their home community. The curriculum is comprised of seventeen (17) general education pre-requisite requirements (56 semester hours) and a professional component consisting of ten (10) nursing courses (37 semester hours). Transfer credit for 24 semester hours is awarded for prior completion of the Associate or Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing.
In addition to the traditional RN to BSN track for Registered Nurses, Auburn University Montgomery also offers a previous degree option for RNs holding a non-nursing bachelor’s degree, as well as a joint AUM/Auburn University MSN degree option.
