A BSN program designed especially for the RN.

Tailored to the RN, with each class in the program taught in a 10-week span, the RN to BSN program can be completed in as little as 19 months. This allows the student to focus on fewer subjects at a time and gain a deeper understanding of the material.

RN to BSN Curriculum

West Coast University's RN to BSN courses focus on the skills and experiences nurses bring to the educational setting. The curriculum includes nursing courses designed and delivered specifically for current RNs, along with required general education coursework. RN to BSN courses are designed to develop leadership and management skills for the nursing professional.

At our California campuses, we offer the RN to BSN degree program in a bookend format where you attend the first and last weekend of each term onsite and complete the balance of the curriculum online. Applicants must have an ADN or diploma in nursing and hold a current RN license in the U.S.
