Choose Your Own Schedule
Complete your Bachelor of Science in Nursing with 9 core nursing courses in one of three flexible ways.
View the course of study for each option:
- Recommended full- and part-time schemas, effective Fall 2018 (PDF)
- Full time allows you to complete the program in 9 months (two semesters).
- Part-time option 1 allows you to complete the program in 12 months (three semesters) by taking three courses a semester.
- Part-time option 2 takes five semesters, but is balanced by the less-intense academic pace of two courses per semester (with only one course in the third semester).
Required general education courses are not indicated in the course of study. If you haven't completed those courses before you enter the RN to BSN program, you must add them to their schedule, which could prolong your timeline.
