Through collaboration with Ohio State’s regional campuses and the introduction of CARMEN, the university’s new distance learning system, the RN to BSN program is now able to reach beyond central Ohio. This allows students greater flexibility to work, meet family responsibilities, and study while earning a BSN in their local communities.
The program requires a total of 120 semester hours, including prerequisite, general education, and nursing courses. Some of the course work can be earned through previous courses taken at institutions of higher education, and/or associate or diploma nursing programs. A minimum of 30 semester hours must be completed at Ohio State in order for degree conferment.
The prerequisites may have been completed within the previous educational experience of the registered nurse. Any outstanding prerequisites must be completed by the year of application and before beginning the nursing courses.
