RN to BS Track
Online learning geared to the working professional
The UMass College of Nursing offers the RN to BS track for students who are already registered nurses. Earning a bachelor's degree is the first step toward leadership positions in nurse management, clinical specialties, and public health and research – careers that deliver immense personal satisfaction and long-term financial rewards.
RNs can fulfill work and family obligations without giving up advancement potential or a world-class education. All program coursework is designed to be completed online. Students can complete the clinical component of the program at a location convenient to their homes, but must attend an on-campus orientation, occasional brief clinical conferences, and one evaluation day in the spring.
Important Bb Information from Orientation
- Full time is equivalent to 3 courses per semester, including summer session, allowing for program completion in three semesters.
- Part-time is equivalent to 2 courses per semester, including summer session, allowing for program completion in six semesters.
- Coursework begins in June and ends the following May.
Students who successfully complete the program receive the same Bachelor of Science degree as students in the university's on-campus programs, and are entitled to attend the university's graduation ceremony and the College of Nursing Convocation celebration.
