RN to BSN Flexible Option Curriculum


The RN has the same course requirements as the generic students for the BSN degree. General education courses are sequenced for completion prior to the professional nursing component. After general education requirements are met, an RN can complete the program in two semesters.

Grambling State University School of Nursing is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and approved by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing.

Graduation Requirement: 30 hours must be taken in residence at GSU
