Online RN to BSN (Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing)

Brandman University's Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) builds on your current experience and nursing practice skills, integrating them with new and innovative ways to think about the health care system. Emphasis is placed on patient-care, use of technology, improving outcomes, innovative leadership, and using evidence to base practice.


The RN to BSN program is delivered using a blend of: one multi-day immersion session at the Irvine, CA campus at the beginning of the program; internships/clinical practice in hospitals, clinics and health centers near your home or work; and online lectures, demonstrations and exercises.

Who is this program for?

This program is designed for the registered nurse with an associate degree who wants to make a difference in the health care industry by delivering patient-centered care. The accelerated BSN program is also designed for seamless movement into Brandman's Doctor of Nursing Practice degree, which together can be completed in as little as 4 years.

Accelerated RN to BSN program: 36 credits can be completed in one year, full time.

Sharon Hoier has been a nurse for over 30 years, and it was always her goal to become a Nurse Practitioner. She wanted to mentor other nurses and share her years of experience with them. She chose to get her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) at Brandman because of the quality of their program and because their blended model made it easier to study while working full time. Today, Sharon is a Nurse Practitioner at a Medical Group in Newport Beach, California.
