Looking for UIU’s 4-year, online RN-BSN program?

Apologies, UIU is no longer accepting applications to the 4-year, online RN-BSN program. Please consider the 3+1 Pre-Nursing Program with Allen College as an alternative.

Lower Tuition Costs

By learning more in less time, you can save thousands in tuition costs and associated expenses.

Focused Studies

The 15-month nursing component allows for greater engagement and focus in the healthcare setting.

Athlete Friendly

Allows students to participate more fully in athletics, which is more difficult in a traditional BSN program.

No Waiting Lists

Your spot in the BSN program is guaranteed if you maintain the minimum academic requirements.
