RN to BSN Degree

RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

We know you’re busy—the RN to BSN program at The University of Texas Permian Basin is designed to get you in, get out and get back to work. The degree is science-based, patient-centered, and caring- driven. This program is designed to fit into an already busy schedule of professional and personal commitments.

Students choosing the campus-based option will meet face-to-face one weekend per month, Friday and Saturday, on the UTPB campus or in pre-approved clinical settings. Existing written agreements exist between the affiliating agencies for the clinical settings and UTPB. Remaining required course activities will be web-enhanced or conducted through Blackboard, UTPB's learning management system.
