For registered nurses seeking bachelor's degrees in nursing, MU offers the RN to BSN Option online. A student who is a graduate of an associate-degree or diploma program and is currently licensed (or eligible for licensure) to practice nursing in Missouri may be eligible. The program emphasizes critical thinking and practice skills necessary for clinical management of patients within a constantly changing health care environment.

The online option is for nurses who cannot travel to attend traditional classes on a regular basis. To complement the weekly online assignments, students will participate in scheduled MU campus requirements per semester.

Completion of the program includes 120 credit hours. The length of the program varies, depending on equivalent prerequisite courses completed and choice of part-time or full-time enrollment.

See the general BSN section for additional information applicable to the RN to BSN Option.
