RN to BSN Program Details
The BSN for RNs is a bachelor’s degree program uniquely designed for the associate degree and diploma prepared registered nurse who wants to extend his or her knowledge and skills.
ResU offers one of the most innovative BSN for RN completion programs in Illinois, taught by full-time faculty members who mentor you every step of the way. Our student-centered teaching methods use adult learning principles specifically designed for students who have been away from the classroom for a while.
Here’s what makes ResU’s BSN for RN program unique:
-You can complete your degree in only 7 courses (7 week terms)
-There is NO clinical coursework required and no specific clinical rotations; instead you apply what you’ve learned through assignments that ask you to use real world problems/challenges
-Contemporary curriculum that builds on your current knowledge base
-The program is delivered in authentic hybrid format (1 class per week)
-The curriculum is designed NOT to repeat any of the courses which you completed in your basic coursework; instead, we build on what you already know
-You’re already a working nurse. In this program, there is no need to put on a student uniform and go to a site for full days as a student
-Generous RHC tuition reimbursement and benefits-eligible employee discounts apply!
Graduates of a state-approved or NLNAC-accredited program with a current Illinois registered professional nurse license will be awarded 38 semester hours of credit for the following nursing courses pending successful completion of the first nursing course at Resurrection University.
MSN Program Details
The graduate nursing program prepares nurses as advanced generalists or specialists who will care for patients throughout the full spectrum of the health care delivery system. The curriculum allows the graduate student to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree.
A set of graduate core courses is required for all program majors. Each nursing major consists of core courses, clinical core courses or business core courses and specialty courses. This combination reflects course work from the biological, behavioral and organizational sciences. In addition, practicum experiences are required.
Graduate Nursing Program Objectives
-Apply effective modes of communication in the provision of care to clients and aggregates.
-Synthesize critical thinking processes used to make logical decisions in advanced nursing practice.
-Apply theoretical and research-based nursing interventions directed at clients and aggregates.
-Demonstrate professional behaviors and assume leadership roles consistent with standards, regulatory and ethical codes in the profession and community.
Resurrection University offers five graduate nursing majors. These are:

RN to MSN Program Details
Nurses who have previously graduated from a nursing diploma program or earned an associated degree in nursing are eligible to pursue advanced study leading to a MSN degree. This program is designed to build upon the initial nursing education and foster growth and development in the profession. In recognition of the basic nursing program and work experience, 38 semester hours of academic credit are banked and awarded upon successful completion of the first BSN for RN level course. Students must complete the BSN level courses with a grade of B or greater in order to matriculate into the graduate level courses.
In order to be eligible for the program, the student must have graduated from a state approved and regionally accredited nursing program holding NLNAC accreditation status. Students pursuing the RN-MSN degree program option must complete all requirements listed for the undergraduate BSN program before initiating the RN-MSN program of study. In addition, students must hold an unrestricted Illinois registered professional nursing license.
The MSN program consists of three groups of courses: MSN Core courses, Business or Advanced Practice Core Courses and Specialty Courses. All students complete the MSN Core Courses. The remainder of the program is determined by the selected major. Specific details of the degree program may be found below and through discussions with the Graduate Program Admissions Advisor.
