Nursing, RN to BSN — Online
This 100 percent online degree program is delivered through Canvas, OSU’s online learning platform. You can enroll part time or full time. New cohorts begin each semester — fall, spring and summer. Students enrolled full time take two to three courses every eight weeks and can expect to complete their degree in two to three semesters. Students who enroll part time take one course every eight weeks and can expect to complete their degree in four to six semesters.
Advanced standing credit of 30 hours for an associate degree or a diploma in nursing and a registered nurse license are required prerequisites for the program. You can begin the program while completing prerequisites, however this will lengthen the time to degree completion.
Coursework includes nursing theory, global health, research and community nursing as well as an extensive review of culture, leadership and management principles and current trends and issues in the profession. The program culminates in the capstone course. Two courses have a clinical component in which assignments are made and completed based on your schedule and location.
To apply for the program, students must complete and submit the following:
- OSU undergraduate application as a transfer student
