RN to BSN Program Details
The hybrid online R.N.-to-B.S.N. program is designed for the registered nurse who seeks career advancement by earning the Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The program requires completion of 36-80 credits, depending upon previous college coursework. Students must have a valid R.N. license. Its hybrid online format is ideal for working adults.
BSN Program Details
The traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing is ideal for entering freshmen and students with general education transfer credits in non-Nursing fields. Entering freshmen and transfer students who do not have a bachelor’s degree are eligible for the baccalaureate program. Freshmen typically complete the program in four academic years; transfer student completion will vary depending upon the number of credits transferred. Upon completion of senior requirements and graduation from the University, students are eligible to take the state board examination (NCLEX-RN) to work as registered nurses.

Marymount University offers the highest credential in nursing practice, the Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.) This degree is available to those with a B.S.N. or non-clinical M.S.N. as well as those with a clinical M.S.N.

The program is practice-focused, innovative, evidence-based, and reflects the application of credible research findings. Graduates of Marymount’s program will gain the highest level of scientific knowledge, be prepared to influence health care policy, and be ready to act as change agents and professional leaders within their organizations and in the field.
