Online RN-to-BSN Program
As the healthcare industry continues to advance and patient needs become more complex, a growing number of hospitals are establishing new education standards for their nursing staffs and only hiring nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing or higher.
The Northeastern University online RN-to-BSN program was developed for licensed registered nurses who want to advance their careers and stay competitive in the field. To be considered for admission, you must:
- Hold an active, unrestricted RN license. If you have not yet taken your NCLEX, you may still submit an application for the program, but you must be licensed before you begin the program
- Successfully complete the program course prerequisites listed below
- Transfer in 83 credits from your initial nursing degree courses, plus any additional semester credits achieved at regionally accredited colleges and universities. You may still be admitted and enrolled with up to 9 of these credits outstanding, but any additional coursework toward the 83 transfer credits must be completed before you can receive your BSN. These additional credits can be taken at Northeastern University and/or at any regionally accredited college or university.
