The mission of the RN to BSN program at Monmouth University is to prepare a registered nurse for professional practice through integration of a general liberal education with professional learning and activity. The professional component of this education is designed to prepare a professional nurse who promotes, restores, and maintains health for individuals, families, groups, and the community.
- are independent practitioners who make considered judgments;
- act with responsibility;
- are responsible for their own professional growth and learning; and
- are accountable to their clients and to their profession for their nursing practice.
The program is designed for graduate nurses from associate degree programs and/or diploma schools of nursing.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing/master’s degree program in nursing/Doctor of Nursing Practice program and post-graduate APRN certificate programs at Monmouth University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
The faculty of the Department of Nursing and Health Studies at Monmouth University believes that the professional nurse must be a person who:
- is liberally educated;
- has a highly developed social awareness; and
- has a concern for the well being of individuals.
Because this program is designed for the working RN, whenever possible classes are scheduled to meet in a three-hour block of time, one day per week. When more than one section of a course is offered, both day and evening sections are scheduled. Students may attend on either a part or full-time basis.
