RN-BSN Gateway Logo

Working Registered Nurses can earn a BSN with the convenience of online courses at a fully accredited university. Each year, we offer two online cohorts, allowing students to begin working on their BSN in either January and August.

      • All coursework is 100% online.

      • New cohorts begin in August and January of each year.

      • Four semester (16 month) program

      • Orientation is held on campus prior to the start of the program.

      • Application deadlines: November 15 (January cohort) and June 15 (August cohort).


The Gateway Program enables working registered nurses to obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing while maintaining their roles in career and family.
