Online, on campus, or both?


Nursing courses may be taken in one of two ways: completely online or in a low residency format. The low residency format offers the majority of each course online for flexibility enhanced by on-campus meetings once a month on the first Thursday.  Non-nursing courses are offered online.  RN to BSN Track
