Nursing (RN to BSN)

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.

Professional nurses:

  • 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 (

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.
