Caroline Johnson, RN-BSN Alumna

Caroline attended Carolinas College for her associate degree, and decided to advance her career by returning for her BSN. "Once I got into the professional world of nursing, I realized how well Carolinas College nurses are prepared. I knew that the RN-BSN program would be no different," she says. "Plus, I can access the program anywhere, anytime. Since I work night shift, it was important to me to have a program that I could access on my own schedule."
