Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program for Registered Nurses with an Associate Degree or Diploma

The faculty of the LSU Health New Orleans offers a one-year program of study designed specifically for the RN with an Associate Degree or Diploma in Nursing. This program is based on principles of adult education and focused on the skills and experiences nurses bring to the educational setting. The RN to BSN coursework includes required general education and nursing courses designed and delivered for RN's only.

This program admits students in the fall and spring each year. Our RN to BSN degree program provides a broad liberal and professional education that builds upon the competencies and knowledge achieved in previous nursing education and practice.

A student must have an unencumbered license to practice nursing in the state of Louisiana and have earned an Associate Degree or Diploma in nursing from any accredited college or university to fulfill the required pre-nursing courses.
