Bachelor of Science
A Bachelor of Science degree will expand professional opportunities for registered nurses in hospitals and other health care facilities as well as in nursing education programs. Graduates will be prepared to assume new roles, exhibit new leadership skills or continue their studies in a graduate-level nursing program.
Franklin Pierce University's R.N. to B.S. program is designed for registered nurses who need a flexible and convenient program as they juggle work commitments, family life and personal time. The program is structured for students who hold an R.N. license and have completed 60 credits in an Associate Degree nursing program. These credits are applied to both the Franklin Pierce core curriculum and the requirements of the major where appropriate.
Students combine traditional classroom studies with online courses. Many courses are offered through a combination of in-class and online delivery. Each student’s program of study is individually designed based on previous education and experience. Nursing classes are offered at the Franklin Pierce centers for higher education in Manchester, Lebanon and Portsmouth. General education courses can be taken at any of the University’s Graduate & Professional Studies centers and online.
The Baccalaureate Nursing program (R.N. to B.S.) is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC)*. The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission is located at 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia, 30326, (404) 975-5000.
*Effective May 6, 2013, the NLNAC changed its name and is now the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
