The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJR) recently announced the need for nursing education programs to adopt a new standardized set of non-nursing course requirements, and Oak Point University is only one class away from compliance with these standards. As part of the RWJF’s Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action and its Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) initiative, nurse leaders developed the new set of BSN foundational courses for the new standard of BSN to RN programs. These courses consist of 60-64 non-nursing credits that would assist those transitioning from an associate’s degree to a BSN degree more effectively. Oak Point already requires all but one of these non-nursing courses, ensuring that the BSN to RN program continues to generate well-equipped and highly educated nurses.
