If you are already a nurse and have earned an associate's degree, EIU's RN to BSN Completion Program will help you earn your bachelor's degree.
For those who are not currently nurses, Eastern offers two options:
In the traditional 2+2 program, students may choose to attend EIU for two years before transferring to any of a number of accredited programs offering a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN) and the knowledge and preparation to pass the certification exam required to become a registered nurse (RN).
