RN to BSN Program Overview

Complete your RN-BSN in 12 months

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses accelerated program provides a unique alternative to the traditional method of pursuing a bachelor’s degree. This program is designed as a transformational learning experience leading to personal and professional skill development to meet the needs of Registered Nurses previously prepared at the ADN or diploma level.

  • Two courses at a time; courses are 7 weeks in length.
  • 32 semester hours of nursing courses; core education requirements based on previous academic record of completion.
  • Cohort-based learning online or on-site format. On-site format is one night per week and one additional class online.
  • Easy transfer from Associate’s degree or diploma programs.
  • Students may start the program immediately after graduation from an Associate’s degree RN program prior to completing NCLEX.
  • Clinical assignments are incorporated within courses to integrate new knowledge and demonstrate attainment of outcomes.
  • Two-year, one course at-a-time option also available.

The admission calendar for nursing allows students to be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. The RN-BSN program allows students the opportunity to start 6 times per year—choose the best start time for you. King University reserves the right to change a cohort start date.

This program is also offered online. View more information about the RN-BSN online program.
