RN to BSN

This program is open only to individuals who have active license as Registered Nurses and no fewer than 60 academic credits with a two year degree or its equivalent awarded. Charisma University decided to offer this course because of the need for a uniquely-tailored curriculum for students who are licensed RNs and graduates of two years equivalent education. Charisma University's RN to BSN program was designed to be flexible in order to accommodate the hectic timetables of RNs who work full time yet want to complete their BSN. This program offers a strong foundation for professional practice as well as for further education such as graduate study.
