A special curriculum is available for Registered Nurses (RNs) desiring to complete requirements for a baccalaureate degree with a major in nursing. The curriculum is designed to accommodate RNs who are employed and/or involved with family, community, and other responsibilities and offered via a web-enhanced format.
The RN to BSN track of the undergraduate program builds upon a core curriculum foundation in liberal arts, basic and applied sciences, and behavioral and social sciences. An applicant is one who has:
- Graduated from an associate degree or diploma program
- Passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)
- Become registered or eligible to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia
- Been admitted to Radford University
The track may be completed as quickly as three semesters (fall-spring-summer), and part-time options are available. Most of the coursework is web-based. Our students visit the Radford campus approximately twice per semester for orientation, presentations, and group projects with the remainder of lectures, discussions, assignments, and tests online.
