RN to BSN Programs
RN to BSN Program Details
The BSN completion program for RN students has course offerings for both day and evening students. The length of time required to complete the program varies for each individual due to differences in educational backgrounds and the availability of course offerings. Upon admission to the University, RNs must provide the School of Nursing with evidence of graduation from a state board approved nursing program. Students must hold an active unrestricted NC RN license before enrolling in the required nursing courses.
BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed to be completed in four academic years. The course requirements in the BSN program are rigorous. In order to be competitive when applying for the upper division, students on the four-year plan must be able to perform well academically while completing 16-17 semester hours (s.h.) each semester, or should consider attending summer school. Factors that may lead students to consider a five-year plan include long distance commuting, family obligations, demanding job requirements, and financial need requiring more than 10-15 hours of work a week.
The degree consists of four components: General Education Core Requirements (GEC), Nursing Cognate Requirements (pre- and co-requisites for the upper division major), upper division major courses, and electives sufficient for meeting degree requirements. Students must earn a total of 122 s.h. to complete their Bachelor’s degree.
