Nursing (RN to BSN)

We are excited to announce that Bay State College is now offering a fully online RN to BSN program.

The Bay State College RN to BSN program is open to students who possess a valid, unencumbered RN license with a preferred 2.7 GPA.  This program was designed to allow individuals to further their education while maximizing the use of their previously earned credits and work experience.

Increasingly, nurses are expected to advance their education to meet current health care reform initiatives and strengthen the nursing workforce. We invite you to take your journey with us.

Specifically designed for registered nurses who are currently licensed, this program is fully online.  What does this mean? You will be able to complete your coursework when and where it is convenient for you.  You will also set your own pace to complete the degree, allowing you to successfully manage your studies, careers and personal life. If pursued full-time, the RN to BSN can be completed in 20 months or less.

Bay State College Associate Degree Nursing graduates who have obtained their RN license are guaranteed admission into the program.

Tuition: $550/credit

Tuition is based on 2014/2015 academic year and is subject to change going forward. If a student stops out and returns to the program at a later date, it is possible that the tuition may have increased.
