Nursing major courses in the Accelerated R.N.-BSN Program consist of 52 credits. La Salle's R.N.-BSN Program recognizes the knowledge and experience of the R.N. student by providing a battery of challenging examinations through which the student may validate prior learning in nursing. The R.N. student may articulate 25 of the 52 credits as advanced placement required in the nursing major. Students wishing to articulate credits from prior basic nursing programs must have acheived a GPA of 2.75 or better in that program. Listed below are nursing major courses, their descriptions and prerequisites, and opportunities for earning credits by challenge examination. A fully online option for the nursing courses is available, with cohorts beginning each January and May.
