The University of Mary Washington will offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) completion program beginning in August 2014, at the start of the fall semester.
It is designed for graduates of associate degree or hospital diploma programs who hold an RN license in Virginia and who wish to gain a Bachelor of Science in nursing.
Full-time students can complete the program in one year. Students may also work on the degree part time. Classes will be held in the evenings and include online delivery.
The nursing degree completion program will be located on the Stafford campus of the University of Mary Washington, near the U.S. 17 interchange of Interstate 95. Parking is plentiful.
Applications for full- and part-time study are now being accepted.
Development of the RN-BSN program has been supported by a grant from the Community Benefit Fund of the Mary Washington Hospital Foundation.
