With demand for BSN graduates increasing, there is no better time to increase your experience and advance your career with an RN-to-BSN degree. Completing your BSN degree — either through an on-campus or online nursing program can help you advance in the healthcare field, or prepare you to enter into a graduate degree program.

An online nursing program designed for working RNs

The Goodwin University RN-to-BSN online nursing program has been designed around the busy lifestyles of working nurses. We understand that you work hard and it’s not always easy to make it into class after a long day on your feet, so we’ve made it possible to complete your class work in a convenient online format.

Our RN-to-BSN online nursing program can be completed part-time in as 12 months or be designed to meet your individual needs. Graduates are prepared for nursing practice in a variety of settings with knowledge and skills that are transferable to multiple areas. And thanks to our fixed tuition model, you can know the total cost of completing your BSN degree before you begin classes.

Only students that have passed the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) and are licensed as RNs, may register for NUR 300-400 level courses and complete their bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Additionally, up to thirty-five (35) nursing credits may be awarded through the Connecticut Articulation Agreement upon satisfactory (C+ or better) completion of NUR 300 Foundations of Professional Nursing.

The baccalaureate degree program in nursing (RN-to-BSN and ABSN) at Goodwin University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791. Goodwin University is a member of SARA and therefore can offer our RN-to-BSN program to residents of other SARA states.

The RN-to-BSN program was granted initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in February 2016. As of February 10, 2021, the accreditation was renewed for 10 years, extending to December 31, 2031. The ABSN program, which was offered for the first time in Fall 2019 per CCNE is included under this initial BSN accreditation. The next evaluation visit is scheduled for Spring of 2031.

Secondary to the delay in ADN graduates being able to take the NCLEX related to COVID 19, graduates from the associate degree program at Goodwin University only, may be admitted to the RN-BSN track and take NUR 300 and NUR 310 without an RN license. This interim policy became effective for the April 2020 graduates and will remain in place until NCLEX testing centers resume their regular scheduling processes.
