TESU’s online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) program is designed for licensed registered nurses ready to further their education and pursue new career opportunities. Already have a bachelor’s degree? Our accelerated 2nd degree BSN is designed specifically for those who have previously earned a non-nursing bachelor’s degree but who are now interested in becoming a nurse. This is a hybrid program with online and on-campus courses.

With TESU’s relevant, up-to-date curriculum, we provide you with skills you can apply directly to your career to help you stand out from the crowd. Whether you are looking to get your MSN, DNP, or a nursing certificate, we are ready to help you succeed.

Our self-paced, online programs enable registered nurses to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees without the need to sacrifice their careers or personal responsibilities. We believe in you and your success and that is why we are here to help. But don’t take it from us, ask our alumni.
