Program Description

The NCCU RN-BSN Program is one of the oldest in North Carolina. Established in 1969 as a degree completion program for registered nurses leading to a BSN degree, the program transitioned to a fully online offering in 2006. The NCCU RN-BSN Program uses the most current teaching technology, including access to NCCU’s Shepard Library via the Internet. The program may be completed within 12 months following the bridge course, or in two years if electing a part-time status.

All applicants must successfully complete the University’s General Education Curriculum (GEC) before enrolling in the Upper Division, Nursing 4520. Upon successful completion of Nursing 4520, Introduction to Professional Nursing (bridge course), the RN-BSN student will receive 63.5 credit hours. The BSN degree establishes the basis for graduate study in nursing.
