RN-BS Degree Completion



RN-BS Degree Completion

If you're an RN with an associate degree, St. Catherine University offers you a flexible path to advance your career and earn a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree with a nursing major, with:

  • Take a 10-12 month sequence of upper-level nursing courses
  • Get credit for your associate degree in nursing (and additional liberal arts courses)
  • Choose from two learning formats: hybrid learning, blending evening and online, and a 100% online option

But that's only the beginning. In St. Kate's RN-BS Degree Completion option you'll also:

  • Develop skills to work across cultures and in teams to improve patient outcomes
  • Build meaningful relationships — you'll be supported and mentored as part of a diverse student cohort
  • Ground your work in ethics and mindful practice
  • Prepare to advance in your current practice or into a new position, pursue graduate study and advanced practice, and secure your future

If you're a nurse employed at one of St. Kate's RN-BS partners, you'll receive additional benefits — including a St. Kate's partner scholarship.
