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.

The RN-BSN Completion Program was designated as exemplifying “Excellence in Holistic Nursing Education” by the American Holistic Nurses Association, 2013


BSN Collaborative Program

The Partners in Nursing Education (PINE) Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is a collaboration between the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) and the University of Maine at Fort Kent (UMFK). The curriculum is provided by UMFK and taught at UMA's Augusta campus and online. (This program will not require travel to Fort Kent). This program is a combination of traditional classroom lecture, laboratory credits, and clinical experience.
