Nursing Major - RN-BSN Completion Program of Study (RN-BSN)

The University of Pikeville offers one option to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree: the RN-BSN completion program which is offered online. The RN-BSN program is for registered nurses who have an associate’s degree or diploma from a state-approved pre-licensure RN program and hold an unrestricted RN license. The RN-BSN program prepares the RN for evidence-based client care delivery or advanced staff and leadership positions in diverse practice environments. Graduates of the RN-BSN program are provided the foundation for graduate level education, contingent on the graduate school's admission requirements.

In either the ASN or RN-BSN program, a required non-nursing course may be taken prior to admission. However, this does not guarantee admission to nursing. Nursing (NUR) courses can only be taken in a predetermined sequence after admission to the respective nursing program.
