Welcome Prospective RN to BSN Student

Welcome to Samuel Merritt University’s RN to BSN program! Our program is designed to help working RNs gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to change the way we deliver health care.  You start the program with a meditation course to help enrich self-care practices.  You will deepen your knowledge of the evidence and science that supports expert nursing care.  You will hone your communication and teamwork skills. Because great swaths of our health care system are designed for the industry rather than patients, we will build your confidence and leadership skills to transform “delivery systems” into healing environments.  It is a tall order, but the system won’t change without the leadership of registered nurses like you!
