How Is Our Learning Environment Different?
Our core program classes are highly experiential and interactive. These classes use small group discussion to promote a wide variety of perspectives that enhance self-reflection and growth. We have found that one of the greatest tools for teaching and learning is each other. Each of you brings a unique perspective with a wide range of experience. Student interaction and discussion is the gateway to self-awareness and self-discovery. Our instructors function more like a coach on a team and guide the discussions rather than “lecture”. Students find this approach extremely beneficial and rewarding.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a clinical component?
All accredited RN to BSN programs require a clinical experience. Unique to Doane, our clinical requirement allows you to design your own unique, personalized clinical learning experience. We recognize the knowledge and interests you have developed during your career as an RN can be a driving force in your educational goals. With the help of one of our nursing faculty members, you will map out your clinical experience in an area that is of interest and value to you. You own the learning objectives based upon your desire to grow and meet your personalized goals.
How much will it cost?
The College of Professional Studies at Doane University offers a private education at a competitive, affordable price. Please contact the admissions office to find out what the current cost is per credit hour and if you qualify for any scholarships or discounts.
