Registered nurses returning to school typically have completed the required 62 semester hours of general education courses. The Wesleyan Essentials requirements are adjusted for applicants who have completed an Associate of Science in Nursing from a regionally-accredited post-secondary institution.

As an RN to BSN student, you will take courses including:

  • Nursing Research
  • Community Health Nursing
  • Leadership/Management
  • Professional Issues in Nursing

Full-time students can earn a BSN in as little as 3 semesters, while part-time students can earn the degree in 5 semesters. You can take classes 100% online or include a face-to-face option of four hours once a week to provide flexibility in scheduling and accommodate your busy schedule.

You will also have the opportunity to challenge up to 12 credit hours in pharmacology, health assessment and advanced nursing. If you transfer a three-hour pharmacology and/or assessment course, you may take an independent study for nursing course or another TWU non-nursing elective to meet residency requirements. For admission to the program, you must take Transition to Professional Nursing, a three-hour course. You may schedule other required courses at your convenience. RNs entering the program will have previous work placed in escrow until they have demonstrated competency in the following courses: transition to professional nursing, pharmacology and health assessment. Upon demonstrating competency in the aforementioned courses, your coursework will be removed from escrow and assigned 31 credit hours. This brings your total credit hours to 64, equaling those required for the generic student.
