Available Majors, Minors, and Concentrations

The RN-to-BSN advancement track consists of 32 semester hours of credit of required nursing and core/elective courses that satisfy the residence requirements at Newberry College. The RN-to-BSN advancement track course sequence is designed to be completed in three semesters (full-time) or in six semesters (part-time). RNs admitted to this track begin the nursing courses in any semester they choose and graduate once they have completed all the required courses in the track. The Department of Nursing offers each nursing course only once a year on a fixed schedule. Program students must meet the Newberry College core requirements just as other transfer students. Transfer credit for previous college-level coursework is evaluated by the registrar’s office on an individual basis. The BSN program is designed to meet the needs of registered nurses and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).


The RN-to-BSN degree-advancement program is designed for working RNs with an associate degree or a diploma in nursing who want to earn their bachelor's degree. Newberry Online courses are offered over 7.5-week terms with five sub-terms for the year. Students can take a maximum of 15 credits per trimester (two sub-terms).
