The Postlicensure track is for those who are already licensed as an RN and who want to advance their career by earning a BSN. The undergraduate program has been successfully delivering quality nursing education to RNs at a distance since 1987. The BSN program at Old Dominion University attracts bright men and women from many walks of life and is offered through distance learning online. If you want to accept a challenge, are ready to maximize your potential and become a nurse for the 21st century, come join us!
RN to BSN students are accepted for admission fall, spring and 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, students may proceed at a slower pace, if desired, to allow the students to work towards a degree while meeting the demands of work and family responsibilities. The application process requires admission to Old Dominion University 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.
