BSN Completion Options for RNs


RN to BSN Program

The College of Nursing now has two options for Registered Nurses to complete a BSN degree.  The choice is up to YOU! 

Both are perfect ways to advance your career.  We make the course of study convenient and flexible for you, the busy RN student, to move forward with earning a bachelor of science in nursing degree.

The benefits of attending either program include:

  • Individualized learning  
  • Clinical courses that are tailored to meet RN needs
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Opportunity to network with distinguished faculty and RN students
RN to BSN Online Program

The RN to BSN Program is a combination of on-campus and online classes for nurses who want to learn in person with some web-based components. Our new RN to BSN Online Program is for those wanting fast-paced online coursework. Both options incorporate two (2) clinical practica courses that can be completed in a healthcare facility near you.

Villanova University recognizes your achievements. You will earn credits toward the BSN degree through a combination of transfer credits from an NLNAC-accredited nursing program (GPA at least 2.75 in nursing courses and an overall GPA of 2.75) and credit awarded through completion of a clinical decision-making assessment.  Click on the boxes to the right for more information on each option.

Due to higher education regulation changes, Villanova University College of Nursing is unable to accept applications for admission to online programs and courses from students residing in Minnesota and Alabama.  For questions, please contact us at
