The RN to BSN is an online program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The program is designed for licensed RNs who have either an associate degree or diploma in nursing. There are several plans of study options for completing the program.
Prospective students are encouraged to speak with a nursing advisor for guidance as needed. Students move through the program in a cohort; cohorts begin each fall. Most students take an average of two courses per semester. The part-time options make it possible for students to work full-time while completing the program. Clinical experiences are also part of the program. These clinical experiences may be arranged where students are working or in the community where the student lives.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing at the University of South Dakota is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
The RN-B.S.N. track in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing is approved by the South Dakota Board of Nursing.

I cannot thank USD Nursing enough for accommodating my needs during my time in the program. During my last semester, I had to care for my father. Instead of dropping out of the program, the faculty worked with me to help me finish the program online. I was able to eventually travel all over the country including Central Texas and Myrtle Beach, all while finishing my Nursing degree online. Thank you USD Nursing for the dedication to unlimited success! Dustin Dvoracek
