RN-BSN | Louisiana College

RN-BSN

The 100% online BSN program is designed for nurses seeking to advance their future. With the flexibility of online coursework, practicing nurses can earn their BSN without disrupting their already busy lives. 

If you graduated from a nationally accredited associate degree or diploma nursing program as a Registered Nurse (RN), you may be eligible to complete the 100% online RN to BSN program. Once you complete the BSN program, you will have the option to transition directly into the 100% online MSN program.

Louisiana College will grant the BSN to anyone who completes the RN to BSN program whether or not they continue to the MSN program.

Our instructors have real-world nursing experience and are experts in teaching and training nurses through online programs. They offer support and guidance to ensure the highest quality education. 

The RN-BSN component is designed for individuals with a diploma or associate degree in nursing to complete the BSN degree. Upon BSN conferral, the graduate can articulate directly into the MSN degree curriculum.
