RN to BSN Program
Preparing nursing professionals for the challenges of health care.
Nurses prepared by a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) are highly sought after by healthcare employers who recognize that patient acuity now necessitates a higher level of nursing education.
The interdisciplinary BSN curriculum focuses on current health-care issues and delivery and prepares the student to assume a leadership role in a variety of settings.
Students can obtain a BSN in several ways. Registered nurses (RNs) with an associate degree or diploma may obtain a BSN through our online track or through the combination on-site and online track offered at the NSU Fort Lauderdale Campus, NSU Fort Myers Campus, NSU Miami Campus and NSU Orlando Campus. Registered nurses receive 64 prior learning credits for their licensure. Upon evaluation of transcripts, additional transfer semester hour credits for general education courses completed at a college or university may be awarded. This track may be completed in 18 months, depending on the number of semester hours the student chooses to complete each term.
For the student without an RN license, please visit the entry-level nursing program, which leads to the BSN and preparation for taking the RN licensure examination (NCLEX-RN).
