The School of Nursing offers a RN-to-B.S.N. program (BS1203) designed for licensed RNs who are graduates of state-approved associate’s degree or diploma schools of nursing. The purpose is to prepare generalists for the professional practice of nursing and to provide a foundation for graduate study. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
For both nursing majors upper-division coursework in nursing, General Education Requirements , and upper-division courses outside of nursing are included. In the RN-to-B.S.N. program it is possible to complete a minor in another discipline while completing the major in nursing. The School of Nursing offers interactive online (Web-based) courses in the RN-to-B.S.N. program. This method of course delivery increases the availability of professional development and career mobility for registered nurses.
You must earn a grade of 2.0 (C) or better in each course offered by the School of Nursing (NRSE series). If you do not earn a grade of C or better, you must retake the course.
Note: most undergraduate courses offered through the School of Nursing can be retaken up to one time (i.e., initial registration and one retake). Variable credit courses usually cannot be retaken (i.e., with the possibility of the initial grade no longer being figured in the accumulative grade point calculation) but can be repeated for credit to count toward your degree.
Upon completing the RN-to-B.S.N. program requirements, you will receive the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. At least 192 credit hours are required to graduate, along with an application for graduation.
