Online Nursing Programs and Degree Paths
At Unitek, we offer online classes in some of our nursing programs to better serve our students. Some of our programs and paths can be completed 100% online.
Associate of Science in Vocational Nursing (ASVN) Degree: With an ASVN degree, Vocational Nurses can further round out their knowledge and skill set. Our program builds on the Vocational Nursing diploma by adding online General Education and science courses. These courses are also 100% online, allowing you to receive the full virtual experience. In as little as 12 months, you could graduate with greater scientific knowledge, enhanced critical thinking, and improved verbal & written communication skills.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree: Our BSN nursing program can create a foundation for career advancement, management positions, and higher salaries. Some courses under our BSN program are offered online, though it depends on your chosen BSN pathway. For instance, the full option is a three-year program that includes online nursing courses in pathophysiology, evidence-based practice, information technology in patient care, and more. It also includes hands-on lab classes which require you to be on campus.
Online RN-to-BSN Program: Through our RN-to-BSN program, you can transition from an Associate Degree RN to a BSN-trained nurse. These 100% online courses will prepare you for nursing leadership roles and higher-paying jobs. Additionally, a BSN degree is often a prerequisite for teaching, administrative, consulting, and research roles. Graduate from our RN-to-BSN program in as little as 12 months.
LVN-to-BSN Pathway: If you are a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) with an Associate Degree in Vocational Nursing or have taken the required General Education courses, you may apply for Advanced Placement status in our accelerated BSN program. This would allow you to skip the first year of your bachelor’s program and advance your nursing career in less time. Some of our online nursing courses for LVN-to-BSN include subjects like pathophysiology and information technology in patient care. Doors open for nurses with a BSN degree, and at Unitek College, you can train to become one of them.
