The RN to BS program is designed to build on what the RN has already accomplished. These courses are designed to meet the needs of the employed nurse. Most of the nursing courses are offered as evening classes. The program can be completed in two years on a full-time basis or longer on a part-time plan.

All RN students with a current RN license are given 33 credits by portfolio toward the required 120 credits required for a BS degree. Minimal fees are assessed for placement of portfolio credits on the Penn State transcript.
