Bachelor of Science in Nursing - RN to BSN
Registered Nurse (RN) License to BSN Degree
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree completion program is designed for registered nurses with a previous associate degree or diploma, and current, unrestricted RN licensure, who wish to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in the professional field of nursing. This RN-BSN program includes coursework and behavioral objectives that focus on the development of the nurse's role as a global practitioner, researcher, and leader. The RN-BSN program also allows concurrent enrollment of current Associate Degree nursing students under a structured program in collaboration with the student’s ADN program. Students could enroll concurrently from their first semester in their ADN program and must maintain good academic standing at both institutions to continue with the RN-BSN program. Current ADN students will only be allowed to enroll in our part-time track to ensure success in both ADN and BSN programs. Students must submit evidence of a current and unrestricted nursing license prior to the completion of the RN-BSN in order to be eligible to graduate from the BSN program. Otherwise students who have completed all RN-BSN courses (except the Public, Community and Global Health Nursing course) would need to apply for a leave of absence until successfully completing NCLEX and obtaining a RN license.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education http://www.ccneaccreditation.org.
