The RN to BSN pathway offers US-issued RN license holders a flexible approach to earn their BSN degree in as little as two full-time semesters. The program is offered completely online with opportunities to practice newly acquired skills in practicum areas.  Students may opt to complete the program on a full- or part-time basis with most classes offered in a seven-week format.  Admission into the program occurs twice a year (fall and spring terms), and the program may be completed in one year if the student is full-time. 

Admission into the RN to BSN pathway is based upon the completion of all nursing prerequisite courses, an associate degree in nursing, admission into the university, and a current U.S.-issued license as a registered nurse (RN).  Students admitted with a prior non-nursing bachelor's degree are required to complete at least 30 credit hours at Mason beyond the first degree. Previous credits earned at George Mason or other universities which have been used for the previous degree cannot be used as electives for the RN to BSN degree.   

Additional information about RN to BSN can also be found in the university catalog.
