Why UW-Green Bay's RN to BSN Program?
Flexible Learning Options/Schedule
Students may take courses on campus or online. Online students never need travel to campus. Online courses are offered asynchronously meaning that students can log in to their assignments any time of the day whenever their schedules allow, even late nights or weekends. Campus courses typically are offered in blocks on one day of the week or during evening hours.
Liberal Credit Transfer Policy
The program is built upon the foundation of the Associate Degree or Diploma in Nursing and includes general education courses, courses supportive of Nursing, and the upper-level Nursing Major. The RN typically transfers 60 credits through articulation agreements and can take all of the remaining courses through UW-Green Bay to finish the BSN. Alternatively, additional credits completed at other universities, colleges, or community colleges usually transfer. Students may transfer a total of 90 of the 120 degree credits required for graduation. Program partnerships featuring tables listing courses that will transfer to meet program requirements exist with a number of community and technical colleges, both inside Wisconsin and across the country.

Nursing students with a previous Bachelor degree from an accredited institution will be considered to have fulfilled the following general education requirements: Fine Arts, Humanities I, II, & III, and World Culture. Having a previous baccalaureate degree does not waive the general education Ethnic Studies requirement or the nursing support requirements of Chemistry, Expository Writing, Therapeutic Nursing Interventions, Statistics, and Critical Thinking. The degree will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office upon your official credit evaluation.
All students will have a nursing program advisor. The advisors are there to help throughout every step of the program starting with free credit transfer consultation even before applying to preparing academic plans, recommending courses, assisting with registration, degree progress analysis and graduation preparations.
