Nursing (RN to BSN)

As part of Project Horizon, RN to BSN students work as nurses in community agencies one day per week, offering free health and education services.

If you are a registered nurse who plans to complete your bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN), our program is designed for you. Its purpose is to provide licensed registered nurses with the opportunity to complete a BSN degree on a part-time basis in a supportive, caring atmosphere. Courses generally meet one evening per week in late afternoon or evening. Community-oriented clinical placements occur in the final two semesters and are designed to accommodate various working schedules.

The RN to BSN program was the first completion program in Connecticut. Our focus has consistently been oriented to the adult learner, facilitating advanced study for nurses while addressing your unique needs as individuals and professionals.

As a transfer student from an associate degree program in nursing, an unlimited number of your associate degree credits will transfer to our RN to BSN program. You will be expected to complete your final 30 credits at the University of Hartford. 

We recognize that you bring much more than prior college credits to our program. Your clinical experience and that of your classmates is a vital component of our curriculum and valued by our nursing faculty. Our faculty encourage you to bring patient-care issues to the classroom and classroom learning to the workplace.
