The faculty of the Division of Nursing (DON) believe that adult learners, such as RNs returning to complete the BSN degree, are self-directed and desire to learn in a mutually respectful, collaborative environment. The program was developed in an online format to help busy registered nurses complete the BSN degree. Graduates of the RN - BSN program will have achieved the same program objectives for the pre-licensure BSN degree. As an undergraduate baccalaureate nursing program, the RN - BSN program objectives are the same as the pre-licensure BSN program. The RN - BSN program shares the mission and is, therefore, consistent with the mission of Louisiana College.
