For the first time ever, Dominican College will be offering a new program for working nurses that allows them to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree online.
Barbara Polowczyk, FNP-BC, RN-BSN Coordinator said the new RN to BSN program will begin in fall 2019 and is 100 percent online. “This will allow the working RN to do their courses at home and at their own pace to get their bachelor’s degree,” she said.
Polowczyk said the 18-month program will be taught by the same instructors who teach in the classroom. The online students receive all the benefits of a real campus, including career counseling, tutoring, advisement, and access to the library.
In December 2017, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a law commonly referred to as the “BSN in 10 Law.” It requires new nurses to earn a bachelor’s degree within 10 years of initial licensure.
