The RN-BS Program is designed for registered nurses (R.N.s) from diverse educational and multicultural backgrounds who want to earn a baccalaureate degree in an environment that will promote personal satisfaction and lifelong learning through challenging experiences.
The curriculum is designed to be completed in 4 semesters of part-time study (9-12 credits/semester), after completion of general education requirements. New Mexico State University requires 120 credits for graduation with a bachelor’s degree, 48 of which must be upper division.
New students are admitted once a year and begin classes in the fall. Students complete the majority of course assignments online. All students are introduced to the technology through a 1-2 day onsite mandatory orientation and are offered technical support through the School of Nursing throughout the semester. It is essential to have a computer with internet service to access the online courses and complete assignments.
Students will be required to meet all NMSU requirements for graduation, including general education requirements. All prerequisite and requisite course work taken at other institutions will be evaluated by the Registrar’s office and transfer credit granted appropriately. Nursing course work taken at other institutions will be evaluated on an individual basis by the School of Nursing and granted appropriate lower-division credit, to a maximum of 41 credits. A 3.0 GPA or better is required for admission to the RN-BSN program.
