BSN Option for Registered Nurse Students

BSN Option for Registered Nurse Students

RN students follow the same curricular path as pre-licensure BSN students in the 4 Year BSN Program.  Registered nurses should apply directly to the four-year BSN Program.  RN applicants must meet the following admission criteria:  (1) successful completion of an NLN-AC accredited nursing program with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or greater; (2) submission of a completed Undergraduate Application for Transfer Students; (3) submission of application fee; (4) submission of all college transcripts and school of nursing transcript; and (4) current unencumbered license as a Registered Nurse.  Applicants should be aware that this is a highly competitive program with a limited number of available seats.

Once accepted into the four-year BSN program, RNs will be awarded thirty-one (31) nursing credits based on completion of their original nursing program and any additional transfer credits as determined by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.  Registered nurses accepted into the program are required to complete thirty (30) nursing credits within the BSN curriculum, the University’s general education courses, and all required nursing pre-requisite courses.
