BSN Integrative Enrollment Pathway Option
The 40-unit RN to BSN Integrative Enrollment Pathway option allows students to begin RN to BSN program coursework during their first semester of nursing school in an external Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) program; this is in contrast to the RN to BSN bachelor’s completion program (for students who have graduated from an ADN program) and the Summer Bridge Option (for students enrolled in an ADN program who begin degree completion courses during the summer). Integrative-enrollment students must be formally accepted into an ADN program in order to apply and must maintain a 3.0 GPA during their combined coursework.
