University of Iowa, RN-BSN Program
The University of Iowa sponsors an RN-BSN program which is located at Iowa Lakes Community College, Emmetsburg campus. The RN-BSN program allows Registered Nurses the opportunity to earn a Bachelors Degree in Nursing while continuing to live and work in their local communities.
Most students find it advantageous to combine enrollment in the local community college with courses offered by The University of Iowa in distance education formats. This allows the University of Iowa to offer the RN-BSN program in its entirety to students in northwest Iowa and across the state.
