RN to BSN Online Program

With one of the strongest nursing programs in the Midwest, Viterbo University has developed an Online BSN Completion program (sometimes referred to as an online ASN/ADN to BSN program).

If you are a registered nurse and would like to earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), consider Viterbo. Our accredited program is designed for busy working registered nurses wanting to complete a Bachelor's degree.

We understand the challenges adult learning presents. BSN completion online through our distance education program gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace when it’s convenient for you. It allows you to work around your busy schedule, family life and other personal responsibilities.

About Us

Our tradition and reputation date back to the founding Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, who were among the first to train skilled and competent nurses. Viterbo has graduated more than 4,000 BSN-prepared nurses since 1971, and we graduate the largest number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses among private colleges in Wisconsin. The Online BSN Completion program has provided a quality educational opportunity for more than 20 years with a personal approach and small class size.

Admission Requirements

  • Graduate from an accredited (NLNAC) Associate degree or diploma program
  • Documentation of an active U.S. registered nurse license or its international equivalent prior to beginning the second nursing course

BSN Career Opportunities

The career outlook for registered nurses is very good. Earning your BSN can help you advance your career in nursing. You may have the opportunity to pursue positions as an administrator or nurse educator. Also, many specialties in nursing – such as clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, nurse-midwives, and nurse practitioners – require a Bachelor’s degree.
