RN to BSN

I am not an RN, but I would like to be. It states you must have your RN first to apply, well that's what I'm trying to get. Confused. Will see college counselor, just explain if you have the knowledge tx

  • I know my sister didn't have her RN before she got her bsn. Is this a university with this stipulation?

  • There are two year RN degrees. You would need to have that before you could go for your RN-BS which is typically an additional two years

  • **To clarify, if the school is asking that you have an RN before you can apply for their RN-BS program that is what you'd need^^

  • Most universities that offer nursing programs tend to have two different tracks. One is for current RNs to obtain their BSN, and another program for those who have no previous nursing degree. You would of course want to inquire about the latter.

  • If you want only a RN degree, community college would be a better fit. A BSN is a bachelor's degree, RN is associate's.
