Self-governed, with the assistance of your faculty practitioners and faculty mentor, this program is designed for working professionals who have an associate degree in nursing, an unencumbered RN license and one year of professional experience.
What is competency-based education?
CBE degree programs emphasize the mastery of skills and proficiency requirements for specific fields, industries and jobs. The application of that theory through projects and assignments allows students to demonstrate their understanding of the curricular components in an outcome that can yield a tangible result. You’ll take approximately four courses every 16 weeks, moving through the content with the completion of authentic assessments evaluated by your faculty practitioners.
This program gives you even more flexibility to balance school around your life. More importantly, it means every competency you master doesn’t just bring you closer to graduation — it’s another skill you can use in the workplace.

Apply clinical reasoning and clinical judgment using evidence-based practice
