Move ahead in your career and make a bigger impact in the community you serve.
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.
Note on Field Experience and Relocating
Students who are considering relocating are advised to contact their Student Success Advisor prior to any decision to relocate in order to determine how relocation may impact progress in their program. Advisors can provide information and guidance on how relocating may result in possible changes, restrictions, and/or additional requirements affecting field experience. Each Board of Nursing and Higher Education Authority governs the field experience rules and regulations in their respective states, and students may be unable to complete field experience in the state in which they plan to relocate. While Walden is committed to working collaboratively with students to secure field sites across the United States, it is imperative that students contact their Student Success Advisor immediately when considering relocating.
