Our program is largely online. There is one practicum/clinical course (community and public health) that has face-to-face components. We will place you in a practicum site close to your residing address (within 100 miles). The community and public health practicum course must be completed in the state of Iowa and you must have a valid Iowa nursing license. This program is for associate degree and diploma-prepared RNs who are ready to expand their nursing skills and professional potential by earning the BSN. The BSN serves as the base for graduate study in nursing and opens many professional opportunities.
As a leader in nursing education, the University of Iowa is committed to increasing the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses in the state of Iowa. We support the national goal of a nursing workforce of 80 percent BSN-prepared nurses by 2020.
