Will the college credit I already have transfer?
We accept transfer credit from other regionally accredited institutions. College-level work completed with a grade of “C” or higher is normally accepted. Developmental coursework is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. You can refer to a complete list of transfer policies for more information.
When does evaluation of my credit occur?
Once you have been admitted by the College to the RN to BSN Online program, an official evaluation of your credit is completed. During this evaluation your transfer work will be reviewed for Core Curriculum and general credit. The RN to BSN program director will determine the applicability of transfer courses to the program requirements. You and your academic advisor will both receive a copy of your evaluation.
Refer to the Core Curriculum page for requirements.
What if I already have a bachelor degree that is not a BSN?
If you have an associate degree or diploma in nursing and are a licensed RN who has also completed a non-nursing bachelor degree from a regionally accredited institution, normally your Core Curriculum requirements will be waived, and you will have program-specific nursing courses only to complete.
Note: A maximum of 90 semester hours are transferrable toward a Mount bachelor degree. Students are additionally responsible for meeting the residency requirement.
How long is the RN to BSN Online program, and how many classes will I take at a time?
The RN to BSN Online program consists of 51 credit hours spanning eight semesters, year-round. Two 8-week courses are taken per semester (one course at a time). Each course is worth 3-4 credit hours.
Note: Students must fulfill all bachelor degree requirements. Requirements beyond the 51 credit hours of the RN to BSN Online program that have not been met may require additional work. Evaluation of prior college work will determine remaining degree requirements.
