Group of four nursing students in class roomSUNY Delhi's Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) online program ranks among the Top 20 in the United States, according to Best College Reviews.

The ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics’ College navigator database and is based on tuition cost, customization options, U.S. News and World Report Recognition as a Top School for Online Bachelor’s Programs, and “wow” factor.

“SUNY Delhi‘s RN to BSN Program is a stellar program,” said SUNY Delhi Provost Dr. Kelli Ligeikis. “Our faculty and staff are a tremendously dedicated group and recognized nationally among their peers. Our students are focused and dedicated and take great pride in their accomplishments, with many working full time in pursuit of the BSN degree. We are so happy to have received this recognition!”

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, earning a BSN is now the minimum educational requirement in nursing and more employers are demanding it. The online learning model has proven popular with professional nurses, particularly those who live far from campus or need to complete the RN to BSN transition on their own schedule.

“Our unique remote faculty and staff model allows us to employ the best of the best from around the nation and the world to provide leading-edge, challenging, and high-quality education,” said Dr. Susan Deane, dean of the School of Nursing at SUNY Delhi. “Our RN to BSN faculty and staff are committed to engage students in a caring and collaborative learning environment, preparing nursing professionals who will become healthcare providers, educators, and leaders in a global and diverse society. This national recognition is a testament to the work of our faculty, staff, and students.”

Delhi’s affordable RN to BSN online program is designed for working nurses. Although the program is offered entirely online, practicum experiences in the student’s local area are required. Coursework can be completed on a part-time or full-time basis. Required classes include Transitions to Professional Nursing Practice, Ethics in Health Care, Population and Community Health Nursing, and Principles of Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice. Online RN to BSN students may also choose electives such as Infection and Disease, Death and Dying, and Organizational Communication.
