RN-BSN Admission

The RN-BSN completion track is available for registered nurses with an associate degree or diploma in nursing who meet University admission requirements. Clayton State participates in the Georgia Statewide Articulation Model.

Nursing application is separate from University application and admission. The program is 100% online and can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Graduates are prepared to practice in diverse health care settings, including hospitals, homes, clinics, hospice, industry, and community.

There is also an RN-MSN program option in Nursing Education or Leadership. Students will earn both BSN and MSN degrees simultaneously upon program completion in the only completely online program in the University System of Georgia. Reference Graduate Catalog for details.
