UMA Nursing | Two Tracks
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is rapidly becoming the preferred educational credential for registered nurses, and we are delighted to help students earn this credential in the Central Maine region.
RN-BSN Completion Program
A program for registered nurses with their Associates Degree, our RN Completion Program offers a combination of fully online and blended learning courses. With a holistic approach and blended format, you will transform as a nurse and earn the qualifications necessary to take your career in new directions, to assume professional leadership positions, to adapt to the changing nature of health care and health care roles, to integrate the new science of informatics into your practice, and to pursue a graduate degree.
