BSN DEGREE: University of Iowa College of Nursing offers an opportunity for registered nurses to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in their home area.

DELIVERY: Students can take all prerequisites, elective credit, and general education requirements at Iowa Lakes Community College while they are in their associate degree nursing program. The Iowa nursing major courses are offered completely on line. There is one practicum course (Community/Public Health) arranged in a healthcare agency close to where the student resides (in the state of Iowa). Students are not required to come to campus except for a one-day mandatory orientation in the Fall before classes begin.

Students who are currently in an associate degree nursing program are encouraged to seek advisement early if they are interested in applying for this program.
