Customization of course content and delivery

It's so easy to make each RN to BSN Online course your own. Lessons can be reordered, hidden, added to, and edited to make your course unique. Some of the other resources that will differentiate your course from other programs are Panopto lecture-captures, additional videos and animations from our Class Prep Resources asset library, and activities from The Neighborhood 2.0.

This course experience truly can be whatever you make it! And, you'll have more time to customize the course because the core course content and tools are pre-loaded, giving you the opportunity to spend your time adding additional features that will distinguish your course from all others.


At Pearson, we are sensitive to the growing costs of learning resources. That is why we have made RN to BSN Online affordable for both students and institutions. First, there are no institutional start costs for programs using RN to BSN Online. Next, RN to BSN Online includes all of the course materials, as well as the Pearson Interactive eText for about the cost of the textbook alone.

What if I already have courses built?

We recognize that some programs have already created course content for our RN to BSN course. Do you have courses that require updating to reflect the most current nursing practices and research? Are you adding new courses to the curriculum or looking to update your existing courses? Are you looking for ways to create a better online course experience for your students? If so, we would be happy to work with you to identify course materials that can help, including incorporating The Neighborhood™ 2.0 into your courses or adding a Composition course that can help strengthen your students' writing skills.

Clinical Replacement Activities

We recognize that not every RN to BSN Online course or program includes clinical experiences. However, for those that do, many of our RN to BSN Online courses include suggested clinical replacement activities. These self-directed assignments developed by clinical instructors provide opportunities for students to complete self-directed clinical projects.
