Troy University RN to BSN Track
Troy University School of Nursing in Troy, Alabama offers an RN to BSN/MSN track especially designed to meet the needs of registered nurses desiring a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. As is the intent of the RN to BSN concept, the curriculum offers the registered nurse the opportunity to advance their degree without unnecessary repetition of course content. The Troy University nursing program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
Within the RN to BSN/MSN track, most nursing courses are offered completely in the on-line format for the convenience of working nurses and to enable them to remain in their home community while advancing their degree. Periodic live meetings are required at campus locations. Web-based nursing courses are accessible anytime and from anywhere and are designed for completion of the BSN degree in two semesters of full-time study or four semesters part-time. RN to BSN students complete clinical hours through activities in their home community. Students are admitted to the Troy University clinical sequence in fall semester of each year with April 1 as the application deadline. The curriculum is comprised of twenty-one (21) general education pre-requisite requirements (62 semester hours) and a professional component consisting of eleven (11) nursing courses (24 semester hours). Transfer credit is awarded for prior completion of the Associate or Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing from an accredited school of nursing at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution.
In addition to the traditional RN to BSN/MSN track for Registered Nurses, Troy University offers graduate options of MSN and DNP, well as alternative second degree requirements for RNs holding a non-nursing bachelor’s degree.
