The online RN to BSN program is designed to meet the needs of RNs who wish to complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, with the option of continuing the nursing degree program to earn a master's degree (MSN).
This SLU/Mercy Hospital partnership program is taught in an online cohort format, so students will be taking these courses online with other Mercy employees.
The nursing degree programs at SLU are available in both online and on-ground formats and are offered in partnership between the School for Professional Studies and the School of Nursing.

A student will need to apply and be admitted to the School for Professional Studies in accordance with SPS guidelines. To apply, complete the free Application for Admission. Select the Mercy Application when providing log-in information to access the application.
Students will then take up to 53 credit hours (depending on transfer credits) of SPS pre-nursing core courses. After SPS pre-nursing core courses are completed, the student will need to apply to the School of Nursing as a RN to BSN program major. After being accepted, the student will transfer to the School of Nursing to complete the remaining nursing major courses and elective courses to obtain their BSN degree.
