RN to BSN Program

Are you a registered nurse looking to take your career to the next level? The RN to BSN degree program at Mount Saint Mary's University is the program designed to help you reach your goals on your own terms.

No matter what your professional schedule, our RN to BSN program works around you, with a combination of in-person and online classes that fit your lifestyle. And you'll graduate in as little as three semesters of full-time study, so you can reap the rewards of your new degree more quickly than ever.

You'll take your general education courses from our Weekend College, while your preceptorships will be held during the week around times that you are available, at locations across Los Angeles. Best of all, we provide you with a complete schedule of classes prior to each semester, so you never have to rearrange your life or work around your education.
