The online RN to BSN program that turns RN's into leaders

The Drexel University Bachelor of Science in Nursing accredited online program is a different sort of online RN to BSN program. Employers know what makes a Drexel nurse stand out – it’s the action-based learning and in-depth clinical skills that allow our students to use their newly acquired knowledge immediately and improve patient outcomes to lead nursing into the future.

A 2010 Institute of Medicine (IOM) study predicts that nurses with a baccalaureate degree will increase from 50 percent to 80 percent by 2020.* In the highly competitive field of nursing, a Drexel University RN to BSN degree can help give nurses an edge with minimal disruption to their hectic work schedule. By earning this bachelor’s degree online, nurses are able to remain employed while learning valuable skills that will result in greater career opportunities over time.

Key Program Features:

  • The RN to BSN program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)**
  • You can transfer all general electives, up to 135 out of the 180 required quarter credits. Credit is awarded for completed RN licensure courses.

  • Three-year tuition lock for those who complete the RN to BSN program within 3 years
  • Employers know graduates of Drexel’s online BSN program perform better in their profession and assume roles that demand critical-thinking, decision-making, communication, and leadership skills.
