Registered Nurses who wish to complete their full undergraduate Bachelor’s of Science Nursing degree may do so through the RN to BSN program available online through LHU Clearfield. “The RN to BSN completion program is designed to build on the students’ knowledge and experience as a registered nurse, enhancing skills in critical thinking, case management, and leadership roles.
