RN to BSN Program

Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College
Degree Level Bachelors
Total Credit Hours 120

Program Description

The ABAC RN to BSN Program is designed to provide the educational opportunity for the RN who has an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) to complete the requirements to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN).

ABAC's RN to BSN Program is 100% online. Students enrolled full-time in the program can complete the program within three semesters. Students enrolled part-time in the program can complete the program within five semesters.

Nurses commonly return to school to pursue a BSN to enhance their education and prepare for additional career opportunities. Because students are already RNs, the emphasis is less on clinical bedside care and more on leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, and population-level nursing care.
