"The hybrid of online and classroom instruction allows me to truly learn. I was slated to attend another program, but the OC RN-BSN program is a much better fit for my learning style. I find classes thought- provoking and interactive, and the knowledge we are learning is directly applicable to my professional role."
Rick, RN-BSN Student
"I originally enrolled in another college’s BSN program, but by the time they finalized my paperwork, they had added 15 extra classes to my schedule in order to complete my degree. Olivet College was straightforward on what they would accept for transfer credits, even giving credits for work experience and training such as BLS and CEU. There were no hidden classes to take and they stuck to their word on what was needed."
Lori, RN-BSN Student
Nurse Navigator/Care Manager
"Liberal arts education is becoming more of a necessity for nursing because nurses are not just doing nursing tasks anymore. Nursing is also now you use emotional intelligence to interact, making ethical decisions in a political world."
Nicole, RN-BSN Student
