RN to BSN Online

After serious consideration, Villanova University’s M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing has made the decision to discontinue the RN-BSN Online Program effective December 2021 which is the end of Fall Session II of 2021. There will be no courses offered related to the online RN-BSN program after that time.

Beginning December 2017, we are no longer accepting any new students.

Current students are encouraged to remain with the program.  Individual progression plans will be developed that will guide the completion of remaining degree requirements by the close of Fall Session II (December 2021).

We understand that you may have further questions and refer you to our FAQs below.
