Iowa Wesleyan College launches online bachelor of nursing degree program

Feb 19, 2013

Registered nurses in Iowa can now complete a bachelor of science in nursing degree entirely through Iowa Wesleyan online classes.

The program allows licensed nurses to take classes on a part-time basis, and complete the BSN in as little as one year.

All of the online classes are taught by full-time Iowa Wesleyan nursing faculty members. Classes begin every eight weeks.

“This new program offers a significant opportunity to registered nurses looking to advance professionally,” said David File, associate vice president and Dean of extended learning at Iowa Wesleyan. “They can now earn a BSN degree on their own schedule, from any location.”

The degree completion program includes 21 credit hours in six nursing courses. Two of the courses require a clinical component, as well as the online classwork.

“The goal of the clinical experience is to integrate and analyze course work with the real world professional setting,” said Dr. Susan Erue, chair of the division of nursing. “Students arrange their clinical experiences in their own community, with guidance and recommendation from their course instructor.”

Students must complete all required nursing support courses before beginning the nursing plan of study.

The program is offered through the Iowa Wesleyan Office of Extended Learning.
