Accelerated Nursing BSN Program
​​​​​​​At SSM Health, we are “growing our own” through an award-winning online RN to BS in Nursing program. Our partnership with Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville began in January 2015 for RNs at SSM Health who wish to pursue a bachelor of science degree in nursing. 

The accelerated RN to BSN program consists of six nursing courses exclusively online. Each course is eight weeks in duration with the nursing coursework designed to be completed in three semesters. 

The benefits to our employees include:
A flexible online platform
Opportunity to work with nurses across SSM Health
Affordable way to pay for tuition
Clear degree path​

Nurses at SSM Health who are eligible for tuition reimbursement may participate in this RN to BS in​ Nursing program. To get started, current SSM nurses can go to the MyHR portal, Innovation and Learning and select “Academic Partnerships.” Click on Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville and begin the journey to achieving a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
