The Post-Licensure, RN-to-BSN Track at Jefferson College of Health Sciences is designed to provide Registered Nurses with
the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in preparation for professional leadership and career enhancement. Admitted students are provided with a faculty advisor who will help them develop a plan of study that is based on their individual transcripts.
Primarily taught through distance learning, this program builds upon the previous education and experiences of registered nurses and features personalized advisement, support and convenient course scheduling. This allows RN students to continue to work while they pursue their educational objectives.
Most Post-Licensure, RN-to-BSN students shorten their plan of study by transferring prerequisite and elective courses from other accredited colleges and universities, challenging courses, holding a nursing certification, and/or through prior learning assessments. JCHS awards advanced placement credits to RNs once their foundational knowledge has been verified through satisfactory performance in specified upper division nursing courses.
Although most RN-to-BSN students work full time and choose to take classes on a part time basis, some students opt to be full time students.
