Is An Online Nursing Degree Right For You?

Drawing on her experience at multiple levels as a student as well as an educator and administrator, Dr. Bundi will share insights on how and why an online degree, such as the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), may be just what you are looking for.

An online nursing degree allows students flexibility in where and when they study and generally more affordable. This is often a great option for nursing students — whether you are just graduating from high school or already have some experience under your belt.

Earning a BSN online may be easier than you think, and just the education you need to succeed in professional nursing, with the flexibility to learn on your schedule, even at home. Most coursework is done in a virtual environment with the clinical training aspect is covered in a local medical setting.

Note: This keynote covers generic information for the benefit of all. Later in the afternoon of May 12th, representatives of Purdue Global University will be offering Live Sessions about online programs they offer and answer any questions you may have.
