RN to BSN Online Option Admission Requirements

The RN to BSN online degree completion option enrolls new students six times per year. The College looks for candidates with the following qualifications:

  • A nursing diploma or Associate Degree in Nursing from an institution recognized by the Department of Education
  • A minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • Current, active unrestricted license to practice as a Registered Nurse in the student's state of residence. All students must maintain this licensure throughout the program of study. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the College.

Prospective students must complete an application for admission and interview with a Chamberlain admission representative. It is strongly recommended that completed applications, along with any supporting materials for admission, be submitted as early as possible for consideration for the next semester start. When all admission requirements are fulfilled, applicants are notified in writing of their admission status.
