A program designed for RNs

We’ve designed our RN-to-BSN program around your busy lifestyle. Whether you are transitioning from an associate degree or hospital diploma program into our RN-to-BSN program, we’re here to help you succeed. The RN-to-BSN curriculum can be completed part-time in 12 months or be designed to meet your individual needs.

Our RN-to-BSN program can be taken online. 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. Only students with an RN license may register for NUR 300-400 level courses.

Graduates are prepared to practice in a variety of areas with knowledge and skills that are transferable to multiple settings. With our fixed tuition model, you will know the total cost of completing your BSN degree before you begin classes.

Scholarships available

We have been awarded scholarship assistance through CT Health Horizons initiative to increase and diversify the nursing profession in Connecticut. Students who are enrolled in the ABSN, RN-BSN or MHNP programs and are Pell Grant eligible or live in an Alliance School District may qualify for up to $10,000 through this initiative.

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.
