The RN to BSN Completion Program has incorporated the latest recommendations made by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, a national nursing organization whose exclusive purpose is to establish quality standards for baccalaureate and higher-degree nursing education programs.


Online RN to BSN Programs – GSU Prepares Nurse Leaders

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing has become the preferred degree by many organizations and prospective employers, and RN to BSN programs are a great way for licensed RNs to get their advanced qualifications.  At GSU we help RNs achieve their goals by offering a high-quality program that delivers all classes online in order to accommodate the busy schedules of working nurses.  Our program is designed for nurses who have an Associate’s Degree or Diploma in Nursing and an active RN license.  The dynamic program is built to accommodate the schedules of working nurses as all course work is delivered online.

For those students that have never taken an online course, we provide the resources you will need to ensure your success.  To start we explain the technology requirements for your computer as well as information about the high-speed Internet connection you will need.  

Our program is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and The Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.  In addition all courses are taught by a professional faculty that is comprised of Advanced Practice Nurses, seasoned educators and doctorally-prepared researchers to ensure an exceptional educational experience.

GSU’s RN to BSN online program can be completed in three terms provided students are enrolled full time and have finished the prerequisite requirements before starting the RN to BSN Sequence.  The nursing courses start in either Fall or Spring semesters and you have a choice of whether you want to attend part- or full-time. We invite you to learn more about the program on the fact sheet below, or if you have further questions contact our advisors.
