Nursing (RN-BSN) Program Goals

  1. To provide a nursing curriculum that is designed to meet global health care needs

  4. To provide a foundation for graduate study

“In 2006, I got married and started a family.  With two children and a full time job, I had not yet found a RN-BSN program that would fit with my hectic schedule, until now.  Holy Family University’s RN-BSN program is affordable, local, and convenient.  The program appears to foster learning in a way that is accessible to the adult learner.  I am finally confident that I will be able to gain my BSN because of what Holy Family is offering” - Susan Mazzeo, RN, Aria Health
