Curriculum

As a student in the RN to BSN completion program, you will complete a total of 120 credits in the following areas: general education (University core and electives), basic nursing, and upper level nursing. Once matriculated, you must complete the last 30 credits of residency coursework at UB in order to receive a degree. You may transfer up to 90 credits from previous nursing program coursework from accredited institutions.

You must maintain a cumulative professional grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 and a grade of at least "C+" (77) in all nursing, mathematics, and science courses. Progression in the nursing major is dependent upon this requirement. While the program may be completed on full- or part-time basis, you must complete your BSN degree within seven years of matriculation.
