Why Choose LSSU for your RN-to-BSN Completion Degree?

Our program is for registered nurses who were originally prepared at the associate degree or diploma level and who want further educational growth and career development.

Students with a diploma or associate degree in nursing and a RN license can complete LSSU’s bachelor’s degree (BSN) on a part- or full-time basis. Students in our program generally work 30 or more hours per week, so our asynchronous online program lets you learn on your own schedule.

Our program’s mission is to graduate competent students who are able to safely provide compassionate nursing care, utilizing theory- and evidence-based practice.
