RN to BSN Degree Completion Program


The RN to BSN adult degree completion program is designed for the associate degree or diploma-prepared professional registered nurse who wishes to continue his or her education to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Coursework builds on prior learning and nursing experience, and provides opportunities for individualized study. The RN to BSN Degree Completion Program offers experiences in a variety of hospital and community settings, enhancing professional nursing practice and providing a foundation for leadership roles.

Classes meet year-round in eight-week modules, allowing busy professionals to make steady progress toward educational goals. Small class sizes encourage significant interaction among peers and professors. Classes are delivered using a cohort module in a face-to-face format at the George Williams College campus as well as at the Aurora campus, Woodstock Center and on-site at local hospitals. 

Diploma and Associate graduates are given 30 semester hours of credit for having a RN license.

To further assist you, support services within the university are designed and staffed with the needs of the adult student in mind. Nursing faculty and academic advisors will help keep you on track to earning your bachelor's degree.
