Undergraduate Programs

Online RN-to-BSN/MSN

Once you’ve earned your diploma or associate degree and work as a registered nurse, you may want to continue your education. Investing in an advanced degree is an advantage for both you and your employer. Experience, coupled with education, enriches your nursing practice and increases your career opportunities. 

We offer convenient online programs for you to achieve your professional goals:

Accelerated Program

In as little as three full-time semesters, you can complete the required courses for a BSN. 

RN-to-MSN Option

By waiving six nursing elective credit hours, you can earn both degrees (BSN and MSN) in only seven semesters. 

Affordable Cost

If you meet the minimum GPA and SAT requirements for admission to the ASN program, you automatically qualify for the highest merit scholarship at La Roche* – which is approximately a 50 percent discount on regular tuition. The cost of nursing textbooks also is included with the cost of tuition for ASN students. 

*Once you enroll as a full-time student at La Roche, you must continue to meet the minimum GPA requirements in order to continue receiving the merit scholarship each year.

Registered nurses from partner health care systems receive the following benefits:

  • 45% undergraduate discount
  • 20% graduate discount
  • waived application fee
  • deferred billing payments
