Columbus State

Most students will have completed the majority of the prerequisite courses in their associate degree program. If you haven't completed prerequisites, you are eligible for admission to the RN to BSN program immediately; however, successful completion of all prerequisite courses is required to obtain your Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Note: completing prerequisite courses while enrolled in the RN to BSN program could prolong the amount of time it takes to earn a degree.

Not all prerequisites are offered online at all times at the University of Cincinnati; however, those courses can be completed at any regionally accredited institution and transferred to UC to fulfill the requirements.


If you are a student at Columbus State, the following courses can be taken to satisfy our program prerequisites.
