Bachelor of Science in Nursing: RN to BSN On-line Program
The R.N. to B.S.N. Program is designed for the RN to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing (BSN). The program offers a flexible curriculum for the education of professional nurses competent in meeting the current and future health needs of society. The curriculum prepares graduates to function as practitioners in acute and long-term care, community settings, home care, and other nontraditional settings, and also provides a foundation for leadership positions and graduate study. The graduate of the BSN program possesses a broad knowledge of nursing, the humanities, the biological and social sciences. The graduate applies well-developed problem-solving skills in caring for individuals, families, communities and populations.
Classes are all online with options to graduate in 12, 18, or 24 months, after gerrneral education requirements are completed. Nursing courses are delivered in condensed eight-week learning modules, designed to allow students to continue working while taking classes. Students do not have to travel to campus for class. The program builds on courses that students have already completed. so that previous general education may be counted towards credit.

Applications may be accepted at any time of year to the IU campus closest to the student's residence. The applicant must hold a current, unencumbered RN license in the state in which you are practicing and/or plan to meet your clinical requirements, have a cumulative GPA of 2.6, comply with immunization, CPR, and other requirements, and complete a national criminal background check.
