RN to BSN Program

The online RN to BSN Program assists registered nurses (RNs) to add value to their basic education, broaden their perspective of current clinical practice, enhance their leadership potential, and prepare for graduate study in nursing by earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing.

Students will complete 24 hours of online core WCU RN to BSN courses and 8 hours of upper division online WCU electives on a part-time basis within two years. Students are admitted twice a year and can begin the program in either January or August.

The coursework is entirely online, including online Orientation. Students are also required to complete two practicum course rotations. Practicum requirements may be met in your local area with approval from course instructors. 

Completing your BSN through WCU's RN to BSN program is very affordable! Tuition and fees for the entire RN to BSN Program are estimated to be $5500 (in-state), including textbooks!
