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 two semesters, 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 RN-BSN nursing option. There are six nursing courses (22 credits) that are included in this option. Beginning in the spring, 2017, four of these courses will be offered every eight weeks. The BSN degree establishes the basis for graduate study in nursing. NCCU RN-BSN nursing option is part of the Articulation agreement for North Carolina. Please visit the Office of Student Support Services (OSS) 9 am – 4 pm to make arrangements to meet with an advisor or have additional questions answered.
