Smith Chason maintains the highest educational standards, and we know that’s why you’re here. Because you care about your career, your patients, and your communities. The RN to BSN Nursing program is a bachelor’s degree completion program delivered in the classroom, taught by master’s level faculty, using books written by leaders in the field, with a teaching style that is interactive and engaging. On-site tutorials and hands-on learning assist and prepare our students for a successful BSN career in nursing.
