The RN-BSN Program at Notre Dame College is delivered in a fully online format designed to accommodate the needs of the adult student. Courses are offered in two eight-week sessions each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer). The length of time to degree completion is dependent upon course credits transferred and time to complete remaining degree requirements.
Students must complete 120 semester credits to earn the baccalaureate degree with a minimum of 36 credits completed at the upper division level (300-400 course level). A RN-BSN program student who is a graduate of a nursing program will receive a minimum of 31 semester credits for previous nursing courses. No more than 96 credits will be considered for transfer. Students must earn a minimum of 30 credits at NDC to graduate. Students applying to the RN to BSN Post-Licensure Track may be given conditional acceptance pending completion of nursing program prerequisites. Support courses must be completed prior to enrollment in the Nursing major course sequence. RN students who submit evidence of current certification in gerontology from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) will receive credit by examination for NR 450. This credit will be applied during the student’s last semester before graduation.
