Frequently Asked Questions about the Online RN-BSN
The rapidly changing landscape of health care services is creating a number of questions among patients and nurses alike. These are just a few of the questions many new online students ask as they prepare to pursue an RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Saint Peter's University. If you have other questions, don’t hesitate to contact an admissions advisor by calling (877)-497-5857 or you can request more information.
What are the admissions requirements?
The RN to BSN program is open only to registered nurses who hold a valid nursing license from any of the 50 United States and an associate’s degree or specific nursing diploma from an accredited institution. For more details, please visit our Admissions Page.
I’m a licensed nurse in the U.S., but I received my original education in another country. Can I enroll in the program?
Possibly. Academic credits are accepted from a number of foreign countries. Call an admissions advisor at (877)-497-5857 to discuss your specific situation.
I have limited computer skills – will I be able to take classes online?
Absolutely. Prior to the start of the program, you will attend an online orientation, during which you will learn how to navigate the system. The goal of the orientation is to make you so comfortable using the online system that the only thing you’ll be focused on once classes start is your education. In the event that you have any technical difficulties or questions after orientation, there is a 24-7 technical help desk available.
How do I attend online classes? Do I have to be at my computer at a certain time each day?
As an online student at Saint Peter's University, you’ll be given access to an online learning environment, where you’ll log on to each virtual class and complete assignments and exams just like a traditional college course. You’ll also interact frequently with professors and your fellow students through lively discussion forums. Coursework can be accessed online anytime, day or night, but assignments must be completed by the due dates set up by each professor.
Where can I find nursing scholarships opportunities?
The US Department of Health and Human Services offers a variety of loans and scholarships to encourage and enable clinicians to work in underserved areas. Visit the site here.
As an online student, what types of support are available to me?
The same level of support that is available to students on campus is extended to online learners as well. Professors are accessible via telephone and email, the Student Services team can assist with all non-academic matters, and admission's advisor work with each Saint Peter's University student to help with the application process and the transition of returning to school. Technical support for all online services is also available 24/7.
Are your online nursing programs accredited?
Yes. Saint Peter's University nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education1. A bachelor’s degree in nursing received from our online program is identical to the degree earned by students on campus. In addition, Saint Peter's’s degree programs are regionally accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
