Whitson-Hester School of Nursing

RN-to-BSN Program

The School of Nursing offers a fully online RN-to-BSN program for Registered Nurses with either an AAS or ADN seeking their Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Through the Tennessee Mobility Act, Tennessee Tech is able to award credit for more than half of the upper division nursing courses to qualifying RN-BSN students. The potential for experiential learning credit is available in community health and leadership/management nursing courses. The policy and procedure for experiential credit can be found in the Student Nursing Handbook.  Most general education course requirements are covered by ASN program coursework; however applicants may have some remaining general education courses to complete.  This will vary based on when and where the initial ASN degree was completed.

The School of Nursing will review each applicant to the RN-BSN program individually due to the diverse educational background of each student. An individualized curricular plan for each RN-to-BSN student will be devised to help the student realize the BSN degree.

Registered Nurses who already have a Bachelors degree in another area may also want to consider our MSN bridge program.
