Online RN-BSN featured on Finlandia Fridays

December 9, 2016

As a nursing school, it’s important for Finlandia to continue to evolve its offerings to make sure students are provided the opportunities they need. That was the thought when the university created a RN-BSN program in the early 2000s, and it’s the thought that keeps that program going strong today in its latest evolution: the university’s first fully accredited 100 percent online program.

Mark Miron RN-BSN ProgramIn this week’s edition of Finlandia Fridays, the RN-BSN program is explored with Program Director Mark Miron. Miron talks about the program’s early days and introduces the new $15,000 price guarantee. That pricing puts Finlandia University as one of the most affordable RN-BSN programs in the nation – and the only one where a student will know with certainty what their total bill will be before they even begin.

RN-BSN programs are designed for working Registered Nurses who have earned an Associate Degree in Nursing (AND). The courses are all offered online, allowing these working nurses to continue their studies while they manage full-time jobs that often include extra shifts, working nights or working weekends.

Miron talks about how the program is specifically designed for local nurses – including formatting the pricing structure to make the program extremely cost effective for nurses at Aspirus clinics. It’s also a common option for students graduating with a two-year degree from Upper Peninsula community colleges like Bay College and Gogebic Community College.
