Why a bachelor's degree from GRC?
Whether you are looking to begin your college education or have decided to return to school to complete your degree, consider enrolling in one of GRC's eight Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree programs or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (LPN-BSN) degree! Our programs are affordable, flexible, and career focused.
What is a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Degree?
The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) is a four-year degree, specifically designed to build on professional-technical associate degrees, such as Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees. BAS degrees include core courses from the related AAS degree, general education courses and upper division (300 and 400 level) courses.
BAS degrees are developed based on the demand from local employers. BAS degrees incorporate more applied, hands-on learning than a traditional bachelor’s degree, allowing students to advance their practical skills and knowledge that today’s employers demand and become competitive in the job market. Graduates with a BAS degree may apply to related master's degree programs.
What is a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree?
Green River College’s Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program prepares students for careers as bachelor's prepared Registered Nurses.
The LPN to BSN Program consists of 90 credits, which includes classroom instruction, campus lab practice, and community lab experiences. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Passage of this exam is the mechanism by which to receive a license to practice as an RN.
