RN-BSN Online

Not all RN-BSN online programs are the same. Reputation, quality and flexibility can make a world of difference.

Our fully online program offers:

  • Only nine required nursing courses, each lasting seven weeks (except for 14-week capstone)
  • An adjustable, flexible schedule with six start dates per year
  • Easy credit transfer from previous programs
  • Option for minor in Public Health
  • Exposure to several graduate program opportunities
  • Accredited program, allowing for graduate education

RN-BSN Online Full- and Part-Time Options

Our RN-BSN online program offers flexible scheduling options. Complete your degree with nine core nursing courses by choosing a full-time course load or one of two part-time options.

The full-time option lets you complete the program in nine months, or two semesters.

Complete the program part-time in either three semesters by taking three courses a semester, or five semesters at a less-intense pace of two courses per semester.

Note: These timelines do not include prerequisite courses. If you haven't completed those courses before entering the program, you must add them to their schedule, which could prolong the time it takes to earn your degree.
