Make your career move to the next level in nursing care.

The complexity of health care systems today demands an increased focus on improving outcomes with knowledge of evidence-based nursing interventions. A BSN-prepared nurse is innovative in health care delivery with knowledge in interprofessional practice, leadership and bedside expertise.

IMPORTANT: This rigorous program allows students to complete all didactic course work fully online, but requires in-person clinicals and labs on the University of Kentucky campus.

  • Completion of LPN and license to practice
  • Cumulative 2.75 GPA on a 4.0 scale
