QB/Hunter RN to BS Nursing

The QB RN to BS program was developed ten years ago, allowing AAS graduates from Queensborough Community College who have their RN license to practice in New York State to enter Hunter in their junior year to take nursing courses to complete thier BS degree. The nursing profession and health care delivery in general have evolved substantially since the RN to BS curriculum was created over 10 years ago. Students must learn more complex nursing content than ever before, and must be prepared to care for sicker patients than in the past. For example, in the current health care climate, patients are discharged after shorter hospitalizations than traditional practice, resulting in a population of patients with higher acuity and who require complex care by nurses.In addition, these proposed changes are aligned with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s current Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (2008). The online format matches the RN to BS curriculum (approved in 2015) and is responsive to the adult learner.
