SRN to BSN stresses patience for future BSN students

Unlike many careers in which the type of employee is defined by the position he or she holds, nursing professionals are anything but typical. Alvernia’s current RN to BSN students are a shining example of the diversity that makes healthcare specialists so understanding, well-rounded and caring.

Although nurses must be able to think critically, I feel communication is the most important skill a nurse can possess. Nurses must communicate with patients, families, physicians, other personnel and to each other every day and all day long.

Blended Courses - Schuylkill Center

Not sure if you’re ready to take a class entirely online? A blended class might be the perfect solution for you. This format offers the best of both worlds. You’ll still interact with classmates in person while you enjoy the freedom of studying where and when you want with online learning.

Students are responsible for communications software and internet service. There are both minimum and suggested requirements for computer setup. For more information, please visit our technology requirements. Each blended course requires additional hours of online instruction.

Enjoy the best of both worlds and take a blended class during Mod 2 this fall!
