Nursing, R.N. to B.S.N.


Return to: Programs in the Division of Health Sciences

Registered Nurses (R.N.) holding a diploma or an associate degree in nursing from a National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) accredited nursing school and licensed to practice nursing where clinical courses will be completed are eligible to apply to the RN/BSN completion program to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing. All nursing courses are delivered via the Internet. Nursing clinical courses are coordinated with faculty. Advanced placement credit may be earned by credit-by-exam evaluation. Earning advanced placement credit-by-exam is available only to nurses who have graduated from NLNAC accredited schools.

R.N. students must complete the UNR Core Curriculum , the nursing prerequisites, and the selected nursing major courses below. Consultation with a RN/BSN faculty advisor is strongly encouraged before beginning course work. Evaluation of transfer credits may meet some lower-division requirements. Students must have a 3.00 GPA in required nursing prerequisite courses for acceptance into the program. For RNs with a GPA below 3.0, conditional admission may be granted. Full admission will be granted if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA in the first 8 credits earned in the nursing curriculum. For RN/BSN students, matriculation into the program occurs in the fall.
