The RN-to-BSN program is for licensed registered nurses wishing to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

Steps for Enrollment in the RN-to-BSN Program

The RN-to-BSN major is concentrated at the junior and senior levels and requires 120 credits for graduation. Students can take non-nursing courses while completing the application process. However, before enrollment in any nursing courses, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Official admission to the RN-BSN major.
  • Completion of all science credits.
  • Submission and validation of a current RN license.

Take the First Step—Complete an Unofficial Transcript Evaluation

To request an unofficial evaluation of your previously earned college credits, please complete the following form. You must include transcripts from all colleges previously attended.

After the request form and all accompanying materials have been received, an unofficial evaluation will be completed within approximately two weeks (allow additional time during peak registration periods). Students may arrange for an in-person or telephone appointment to discuss their unofficial evaluation results.

If you have questions, contact the ACCESS Center at 302-831-8843 or write to Michelle Parnell at
