BSN Students in Class

Learn in Blended & Evening Classes

Earn your BSN without disrupting your day.

Do you need an RN school with an RN program that accommodates your busy schedule? In your first 4 semesters at our nursing college in Tucson, you’ll cover your general education coursework. These classes only meet on campus two nights a week (lab and lecture), giving you the freedom to finish all the rest of your work online and in your own time. To help you earn your nursing degree faster, we’ve accelerated your general education classes to be only 8 weeks each. Once you progress to the nursing courses in your BSN program, you’ll return to the standard 16-week nursing college class, giving you more time on campus to develop the most important skills for your career as a registered nurse.
