The 9-month RN to BSN Program at Roseman is structured to support working nurses in completing their baccalaureate nursing education while meeting their other day-to-day responsibilities. Like all Roseman University’s academic programs, the RN to BSN program utilizes Roseman’s Six-Point Mastery Learning Model®, which allows students to master content at very high levels.  The block curriculum allows students to take only one class at a time, focus intently on that content area, and master the content before proceeding to the next block or course. The RN to BSN program consists of eight blocks each taught online by expert faculty with a myriad of clinical, educational, and professional backgrounds. Students are assigned to groups for specified learning activities to develop leadership, communication, and team skills. Students will also complete projects that enhance their previous clinical experiences.
