RN-to-BSN Curriculum Options

Our online RN-to-BSN track offers students a flexible curriculum that can be completed in one of the following schedules:

  • One Year (three Semesters)
  • One and a Half Years (four Semesters)
  • Two Years (five Semesters)

Students completing the five semester program should note that two of the terms are not eligible for federal financial aid because they will not be enrolled in at least six semester credit hours. Speak to an adviser for more information. A minimum number of hours of 300/400 level coursework is required to be successfully completed in residence at Texas A&M University to qualify for a baccalaureate degree. Transfer nursing coursework from previous RN-to-BSN programs will not be accepted.
