This program is designed with the working adult in mind. Classes can be done on either a part-time or a full-time basis.
Blended courses deliver 30-75% of the content electronically conducted through asynchronous and synchronous tools. In asynchronous class sessions, materials and discussion are accessed through a course management program called Blackboard™. Additional online resources, tools, and activities may be integrated into the course delivery. In synchronous class sessions, materials and discussions are conducted through audio conferencing and/or video conferencing using a service called Horizon Wimba®.
The RN to BSN Completion Program operates on a rolling admissions basis. There is no application deadline as applications are evaluated throughout the year.
After you are accepted into the program you can register for classes. Alvernia offers multiple registration times throughout the calendar year—two 16-week semesters and six 8 week sessions.
Alvernia University accepts employer tuition reimbursement as well as tuition deferment. Tuition deferment is a privilege given to RN-BSN students at Alvernia University. Alvernia offers students the opportunity to defer payment of their tuition when they will be receiving reimbursement from their employer.
