Professional Nursing Pathways Program Online
Start your BSN while completing your ADN—and feel secure that your previous required coursework will transfer with ease.
Dive into the UTA online Professional Nursing Pathways Program
The Professional Nursing Pathways Program at The University of Texas at Arlington offers associate-degree nursing students an effective, time-saving and affordable approach to begin their journey to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree while still completing their ADN coursework.
In the Pathways Program, the UTA College of Nursing and Health Innovation works with ADN programs to create unique pathways that outline the most efficient way for students to maximize course selection that transfer into the university's highly regarded and successful online RN to BSN program. By engaging ADN students early in their nursing studies, the Pathways program provides the means to achieve this career and professional goal quickly and affordably following ADN graduation.
The RN-BSN degree is designed to enhance students’ nursing practice while building upon their current skills and abilities. Students learn to implement globally focused and culturally appropriate strategies for health promotion and disease prevention across the life span as well as develop the ability to use decision-making and leadership skills. The RN-BSN program prepares students for expanding professional roles in the healthcare system.
Students interested in achieving their ADN to BSN and entering into UTA through the Pathways Program upon ADN graduation will follow the RN to BSN start date calendar.
To find out if your community college is a partner in the UTA Professional Nursing Pathways Program, please contact your ADN advisor.
