Finish your BSN with 10 courses in as little as 13 months — without changing your work schedule!

Transfer up to 90 credits toward your BSN with an ASN or DN and an active unencumbered RN licensure, or up to 87 credits if you have not completed a statistics course. At CCU, you're closer to earning your degree than you think!


The dual degree option allows you to earn your RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RB-BSN) while completing some of the coursework toward CCU's Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), saving you time and money when you enroll in a graduate program. Learn more about CCU's dual degree programs.

Three graduate-level courses have been designated as appropriate substitutes for certain courses in the RN-BSN program. Having successfully taken these designated courses in the bachelor's program, and upon acceptance into the master's program, students can apply those credits toward the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). This provides a head start in the master's program for select students.

Discover the CCU Difference

At CCU, nursing is more than a profession, it is a ministry. The RN-BSN curriculum prepares students to be highly competent, compassionate, and moral nurse leaders. Students participate in a Christ-centered community of learners that challenges them to impact both their profession and the world.

While you already have experience in patient care, the RN to BSN program will augment your skills with critical thinking and leadership skills required for advanced nursing positions.

Small class sizes, application-based practice experiences, and colleague relationships encourage learning communities and networking.

Advantages of a BSN Degree

The BSN is the preferred degree in many institutions, especially those who have or are seeking "Magnet Designation." Many health care organizations have a BSN-preferred or BSN-required policy for advancement into supervisory, management, and non-clinical positions. There is a BSN preference or requirement for most research positions, and virtually all public health positions in the U.S. require a BSN. The active duty military requires a BSN of all officers.

The BSN degree provides the nursing theory, sciences, humanities, and behavioral science preparation necessary for the full scope of professional nursing responsibilities, as well as the knowledge necessary for continuing to advanced education in specialized clinical practice, research, or primary health care.
