The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) provides students with a strong foundation to begin a career in nursing. This program track to the BSN is specifically for students who do not yet have a registered nursing (RN) license.
We offer two program tracks to obtain your BSN. Choose from the daytime program or one of the only evening/weekend program options in the Chicagoland area, a perfect option for those with weekday obligations. As an upper-division university, BSN candidates will need to transfer in about 61 semester hours in General Education and Pre-Nursing Support courses. We highly recommend completing a transcript evaluation prior to applying, in order to understand which courses transfer in and which courses are still needed.
Daytime program can be completed in as little as 16 months
Three start dates per year for both Daytime and Evening/Weekend program tracks
Evening/Weekend program can be completed in 20 months
