Online RN to BSN
Our RN to BSN online programs include specific areas of study allowing you to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) online in an organized and supportive learning environment. An undergraduate degree in nursing could help you pursue a career or move on to pursue your master's degree, either at a traditional campus or through one of our online nursing courses. Faculty and student support counselors at Graceland University in Independence, Missouri, will guide your every step from application to completion of the RN to BSN program. The result is a quality nursing degree that will put you in high demand.
You may receive up to 28 semester hours of credit for your previous undergraduate nursing courses, regardless of how long ago you earned them. General education credit may be awarded through transfer, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or online courses. Graduates will be awarded the BSN upon completion of all requirements for the nursing degree.

General education requirements may be satisfied by completing an approved combination of courses listed in our online catalog.

These requirements are waived for students possessing a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. Details on each course in the RN to BSN program can be found online in the Graceland University catalog.
Every state in the U.S. creates its own specific regulations about online enrollment of the students who live within the state. Some states require fees and/or application efforts that require a considerable investment of university resources. In an effort to maintain a reasonable tuition rate, Graceland’s nursing program does not currently accept students who live in Kentucky, New York, Maryland or North Carolina.
Graceland accepts students from Texas, but is not regulated in Texas under Chapter 132 of the Texas Higher Education Code.
