The College of Nursing and Health Sciences prepares diverse healthcare professionals who are collaborative providers and leaders in the delivery of high quality, accessible, culturally-competent and compassionate care.

Applications to the RN to BSN: EARN Program are currently being accepted.

You must first apply to AUM for admission at If you have completed that step, please complete the RN to BSN: EARN Application.


Earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing enhances your current knowledge and skill set beyond the clinical aspects of Nursing to give you a foundation in advanced nursing practices and procedures including: evidence based practice, leadership, ethics, special populations, and informatics. The Educational Advancement for Registered Nurses (EARN) program is designed for licensed RNs who have a diploma or associate degree in Nursing and would like to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Our program is online and may be completed in three semesters of full-time study. If you do not live in Alabama, you will be charged an online-student tuition rate that is only $19 more than in-state tuition!

The following assumptions guide teaching and learning in the RN to BSN program:

  • Learning is a shared experience.
  • The RN student brings a unique persona to the learning experiences through life experiences, motivation, competency, culture, values, and beliefs.
  • The RN students’ prior experiences (personal and professional) provide the foundation for learning/relearning.
  • Adults relearn through identification and critical reflection of individual meaning perspectives.
  • Learning activities that stimulate critical reflection of prior assumptions and beliefs and create a conflict in values and thinking can lead to a liberation or emancipation from instinctual, institutional, and environmental influences, thus resulting in perspective transformation.
