Curricula


Curriculum: Traditional BSN


RN to BSN Option


The baccalaureate program includes a uniquely tailored curriculum for students who are graduates of community colleges and hospital schools and are licensed registered nurses (RN). This program is a two year part-time program. Students enroll in 30 credits at the University of Virginia. Classes are offered in a part-time format to allow students to maintain employment while completing their BSN. The program provides a foundation for professional practice and embraces the philosophy of life-long learning, encouraging further education such as graduate study for advanced practice or preparation as a clinical leader or teacher. The 120 hours of credit are earned as 48 general education requirements, 42 credit hours for select core nursing course in their prelicensure program, and the 30 credit hours of residency. The 42 credit hours are awarded for core academic nursing courses, taken in the student’s basic nursing program, that are comparable to core courses in UVA’s traditional BSN program. 

Curriculum: RN to BSN

  • A 3.0 credit hour University of Virginia elective
