Bachelor of Science in Nursing Completion for RNs

You’ve earned your RN and discovered the satisfactions of a nursing career. Now you’re ready to take the next step: earning your bachelor’s degree. It’s a good career move. You’ll expand your employment opportunities, be poised to achieve more in your career and open the door to advanced study if you choose.

Cedar Crest College accepts RNs directly into the bachelor’s degree program without testing, provided you:

  • Have graduated from an accredited program
  • Are licensed to practice as an RN
  • Obtained a 2.5 GPA or better in your previous course of study
  • Graduated within three years of applying to Cedar Crest or have worked 1,000 hours within the past three years

Once accepted to our program, you’ll need to meet all the curriculum requirements for the nursing major. You may earn academic credit for previous non-nursing studies. And in accord with the Pennsylvania Articulation Model, you may earn 32 nursing credits for completing the Professional Nursing Seminar (NUR 324), which helps you progress toward your bachelor’s degree.
