Postlicensure Program (RN-BSN)

RN to BSN applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and begin in the fall, spring or summer semesters. Students may complete the RN to BSN nursing major on a full-time or part-time basis. While a two-year, part-time completion of nursing courses is typical, you may proceed at a slower pace if you’re balancing the demands of work and family. 

The application process requires admission through ODUGlobal as a degree-seeking student and completion of an online supplemental nursing application.

Registered Nurses receive 33 of the 66 nursing credits as experiential learning credits. These are awarded from the RN licensure at no cost to the student.
