The RN to BSN program in Nursing at Saint Louis University is designed to meet the needs of RNs who wish to complete the bachelor of science degree. The RN to BSN program is a flexible online BSN completion program.
Features of the Program
The RN to BSN Program offers the flexibility that most working RNs require. In addition, the program helps RNs make the most of their associate or diploma degree in nursing. Unique features of this program include:
RNs completing their BSN degree may choose a part-time or full-time online study plan. Once all pre-nursing courses have either been transferred to Saint Louis University or completed at the University through the School for Professional Studies, students may complete the BSN nursing courses full time in two semesters or part time in four semesters. However, individualized academic plans are available
Prior to completion of the BSN degree, qualified students in the RN to BSN Program may apply for admission to Graduate Education at Saint Louis University. A cumulative GPA of 3.25 on a 4.00 system in undergraduate course work is required for admission to the Master's of Science in Nursing program. Immediately after completion of the BSN degree and admission to Graduate Education, RN to BSN students may continue the program with their master's-level studies.
A student will need to apply and be admitted to the School for Professional Studies (SPS) in accordance with SPS guidelines. Students will then take up to 55 credit hours (depending on transfer credits) of SPS pre-nursing core courses. After successful completion of SPS pre-nursing core courses with a "C" or higher, the student will automatically transfer to the School of Nursing as an RN to BSN major.
