– Hello, my name is Cheryl Nosek, and I am the Department Chair for the nursing program at Daemen College.

Thank you for taking the time to watch this video.

At Daemen, we feel it is very important for nurses to get their bachelor’s degrees.

Research shows that bachelor of science-prepared nurses have improved outcomes in patient care, making it the most desirable academic clinical preparation.

In this video, we’re going to discuss our RN to BS program, what we offer to nursing students and the reasons why Daemen is for you.

Let’s get started.

At Daemen College, we recognize that education needs to be responsive to student needs, and to prepare students for professional, intellectual, and civic leadership.

All of Daemen’s nursing programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.

Our RN to BS program also meets the “BS in 10” legislation requirements.

Daemen’s RN to BS program is flexible, and is geared toward the
needs of the working nurse.

However, you don’t need to be a working nurse to complete this program.

As Daemen continues to meet students where they are at, we offer our RN to BS program in two formats, either fully online or as a hybrid course.

Based on your current needs, this allows you to choose the option that best fits your learning and scheduling requirements.

You can complete this program either as a full-time or part-time student.

We will work with you to develop an individualized program plan.

Full-time students can complete their degree requirements in as little as 12 months, or two semesters, based on non-nursing courses needed.

At Daemen, we welcome transfer students and make the process easy.

We accept up to 90 credits, including science and elective credits.

You are waived from our Core or Gen Ed requirements, so your electives can be anything other than a nursing course.

Or RN to BS program, is designed to add on to what you have already done in your associate degree program.

There are no direct care clinical experiences.

Our clinical focus is on application to practice and centers on evidence-based practice, leadership, and population-focused community health.

You can begin in either the fall, spring, or summer semesters.

Nursing careers in leadership, evidence-based practice, population health, and health care policy all shape the professional nurse.

Daemen’s RN to BS program helps students become nursing leaders with unlimited employment opportunities.

Upon completion of our RN to BS program, students will be able to collaborate with other healthcare professionals and patients to provide evidence-based care.

If you are interested in a graduate nursing program, such as Adult-Gerontology, Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Executive Leadership, or Nursing Education, you can move seamlessly from our BS program to one of our graduate nursing programs.

We also have an RN to MS accelerated program for students who have an associate degree in nursing and a bachelor’s degree in another field.

So, how do you apply?

It’s easy; you can apply to Daemen College online by visiting Daemen.edu/apply, and then following the appropriate prompt.

There is no application fee.

The only admission requirement to our RN to BS program is an associate degree in Applied Science and Nursing.

You do not have to have passed the NCLEX exam to begin this program.

However, you do have to have passed that in order to enter the 400-level nursing courses.

Generous tuition grants are available to registered nurses, which underwrite 50% of the tuition.

These grants are not based on financial need, and are guaranteed through completion of your bachelor of science requirements.

Thank you for taking the time to watch this video.

We hope that this has been helpful in providing you with the information needed about Daemen College and our RN to BS program.

We hope to hear from you soon.
