The RN to BSN curriculum is specially designed for licensed Registered Nurses to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The program was developed with working nurses in mind, and is offered in a hybrid format that allows our students to balance home, work, and school responsibilities. The RN to BSN program at WCU is customized for each each student based on their prior college level course work, and is rooted in the AACN’s baccalaureate essentials. Students can earn a baccalaureate degree in as little as three semesters (dependent upon previous courses transferred). All students will complete a set of core RN-BSN major courses as well as any unsatisfied WCU general education requirements.
The RN-BSN program is designed to meet the needs of new registered nurses, in addition to those who are returning to school to complete their BSN degree.
Many courses within the RN-BSN program can be completed online.
Some courses are offered during the summer and winter break and is dependent upon student needs.
Most graduates immediately transition into clinical, community health, and leadership/management positions at local MAGNET and Public Health institutions in the greater Philadelphia area. Additionally, alumni often pursue graduate school and complete MSN, DNP and PhD degrees. Okie Taylor, BSN (2015 RN-BSN alumni)awarded an Excellence in Practice Award at Chester County Hospital in 2018
