Move ahead in your career and make a bigger impact in the community you serve with Walden’s online RN to BSN program.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) program is delivered through Tempo Learning®, a competency-based education experience. This means that rather than progressing toward your degree course by course, you move ahead by completing competencies.
Competencies are skills, knowledge, and abilities that students use to demonstrate their progress. For each degree, a series of competencies that students need to be successful in for their careers is identified. By completing all the competencies included within a degree program, students demonstrate that they have acquired skills and knowledge specifically identified by leaders in their field, and are able to apply them immediately in their work lives.
Mastery of competencies is proven through a variety of assessments, such as selected responses, short answers, or work products.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) program competencies are grouped within areas of expertise.
