UPIKE recognizes RN-BSN graduates

Staff Report

PIKEVILLE – The University of Pikeville Elizabeth Akers Elliott School of Nursing recently recognized its fourth class of RN-BSN graduates.

The UPIKE RN-BSN program is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The program allows RNs with an associate degree to earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN). The program prepares nurses for complex patient care, leadership positions and graduate study in nursing.

“Our RN to BSN Program is a hybrid program with nursing classes completed in one year. The program prepares professional nurses to have more choices in their career. Many of our graduates have moved to advanced nursing roles, including research assistant, clinical and community education and entry to graduate programs,” said Canda Byrne, DNP, RN-BSN coordinator at UPIKE.

The program is designed to accommodate working RNs to advance their nursing education on a full- or part-time basis with blended or fully online coursework.

The RN-BSN program is accepting applications for the fall 2015 semester.
