CHOOSE your PACE: You have many options in our program. You may enroll in a full-time schedule and complete the nursing requirements in a calendar year. Or choose a part-time schedule, and take as few as one or two courses each semester as it suits your life and work schedule. A typical part-time track takes 2-4 years to complete, including an occasional online summer course.
HYBRID or ONLINE: Most of our hybrid courses meet on-campus just two to three times during each semester, while many of our courses remain completely online. On-campus sites include Bemidji, Duluth, Cambridge, Coon Rapids, White Bear Lake, and East Grand Forks.
AFFORDABLE TUITION: Nursing courses that meet off-site are about $330/credit (including fees), and fully online classes are about $360/credit (including fees). On a full-time schedule, you’ll pay less per credit due to banded tuition. More tuition/fee information can be found here. When comparing our program cost to others, be sure you get information about course fees.
CLINICALS/PRACTICUM HOURS: Practicum learning opportunities include a wide variety of experiences, including a community health service learning project. These experiences are arranged between the faculty and the student which means RN-BS students are able to complete much of their practicum learning experiences as close to home as possible.
FUN FACT: BSU’s RN to BS program does NOT require Statistics!
