Are you a registered nurse looking to advance your career? Discover the RN to BSN online degree at Iowa Wesleyan University.

The BSN Online Nursing Degree for registered nurses at Iowa Wesleyan University is designed for the practicing nurse. Coursework can be completed on a part-time basis with all courses available online. Nurses earn their BSN in one to two years. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is awarded upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 120 semester hour program of study.

Credit towards graduation can be gained by a variety of methods including transfer credit, CLEP, DSST, and/or Excelsior exams and Credit for Life Learning.

Transfer credit from a community college can be included in the first 60 hours. Thereafter, college credit is transferable. Upon successful completion of the first two Iowa Wesleyan Nursing courses, up to 38 credit hours of prior nursing education will be released to the student’s record. A total of 90 hours may be accumulated.

The registered nurse submits an application to the IW Online Office. Transcripts are evaluated individually and the information is provided outlining the remaining coursework needed to earn the BSN. Mandatory requirements (as described in the Nursing Student Handbook) must be met before classes begin.

Claire Harapat: RN - BSN Major

Claire-harapat“Iowa Wesleyan was very convenient, working with my crazy schedule of being a 12-hour rotating shift nurse with an active family! Everyone was always very helpful – whether it was personal attention at registration or the support of my professors who were very involved and passionate about my success.”
