Bachelor of Science in Nursing for RNs (RN-B.S. Degree)


The RN-B.S. Degree is designed for registered nurses seeking a bachelor’s degree for career advancement.

Our program is flexible. All courses are offered online and you can enter the program in fall, spring or summer. You can complete the degree in as little as 15 months or take all the time you need.

Quality matters. We have been granted the highest level of accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. You’ll be in class sections limited to RN students, keeping the focus on real world projects and professional nursing. Our program is efficient, helping you keep your education costs down. You can apply 33 credits from your previous nursing education toward your BS degree. Only 28 credits in coursework must be taken at NIU; the rest may be taken through community college.
