Webster University-Winghaven to Offer RN to BSN Program
ST. LOUIS, September 22, 2008 – Beginning in January 2009, Webster University’s Winghaven campus in O’Fallon, Mo., will offer the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program in an evening, eight-week cohort group format.
The BSN degree-completion program is designed for registered nurses who have earned either a diploma or an associate’s degree in nursing. Because of Webster’s five-term academic year, degree candidates may complete the required upper division courses at a more accelerated pace, often in two-and-a-half years, attending class one evening per week.
"Students say what they like best about Webster's RN to BSN Program are the small class sizes, individualized advisement, receiving maximum credit for previous coursework, and the fact that the program is designed specifically for those who are already registered nurses," said Susan Heady, PhD, RN, Chair of the Nursing Department. "We are excited about the opportunity to offer courses in a new location to make the program more convenient for working RNs in the area."
The BSN curriculum focuses on holistic health promotion for the individuals, families, groups, and the community. There is a strong emphasis on the nurse's personal development, the needs and future of the profession, and the broad, accountable nursing role that is needed and expected by today's health care consumer. The BSN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
Registered nurses who wish to apply for Webster University’s BSN program at Winghaven may call 636-561-2400.
The Webster University WingHaven Campus is located at U.S. Hwy 40 and Winghaven Blvd. in O’Fallon, Mo., in the Midwest BankCentre Building. The campus has nine state-of-the-art classrooms including two computer labs, a student lounge and comfortable study areas.
