- We did it! 1000 nurses have graduated from our online RN-BS
Boise State is meeting the Institute of Medicine’s challenge to increase the number of nurses with bachelor’s degrees to 80% by 2020. We are proud to announce that 1,030 nurses have now earned their bachelor degrees through our affordable, flexible, and supportive RN-BS program.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (pre-licensure and RN-BS tracks), the Master of Nursing, the Master of Science, and the Doctor of Nursing Practice at Boise State University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
At Boise State University, we prepare nursing students to provide caring, holistic and quality nursing services to diverse populations while also facilitating the development of leadership and interprofessional skills.
Our experienced faculty and dedicated staff are focused on academic excellence, high-touch student services, meaningful scholarly pursuits and engagement with our nursing community.
