Bachelor of Science in Nursing - RN to BSN Program
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. Students must maintain good academic standing at both institutions to continue with the RN-BSN concurrent program and be recommended by faculty or administration. Students in the concurrent programs are encouraged to take no more than 6 units per Fall/Spring semester and no more than 12 units in the Summer semester.
Students must submit evidence of a nursing license after the completion of the basic nursing program in order to be eligible to graduate from the BSN program. Otherwise students would need to apply for a leave of absence until successfully completing NCLEX and obtaining a RN license.
