The RN-BSN/MSN degree program at Thomas Edison State University is designed for experienced RNs who want a quality education with the convenience and flexibility that an online program can offer. With open and rolling admissions, RNs can enroll any day of the year. With a self-paced schedule and no limit on time for degree completion, they can finish degree requirements at their own pace as long as they complete at least 3 credits at Thomas Edison State University in each 12 months. Students can earn maximum credit for prior learning. There are many credit earning options, and RNs can achieve their educational goals in a manner that saves both time and money.

Please note: as of January 2020 we no longer offer the TECEP Exam for NUR-428: Nursing Leadership and Management.

RN-BSN Program

Graduates of associate degree and diploma programs of nursing may enroll in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree only (RN-BSN program). The BSN degree program requires a minimum of 120 credits and includes 12 graduate credits that may be applied to the Master of Science in Nursing program at Thomas Edison State University.

RN-BSN/MSN Program

Students may also earn both a BSN and a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree (RN-BSN/MSN program) with preparation as a Nurse Educator, Nurse Administrator or Nursing Informatics specialist at the master's level. Students in the RN-BSN/MSN nursing program will need only to complete an additional 27 credits beyond completion of the BSN degree requirements for their MSN degree. Graduates of the MSN degree program will be awarded a graduate nursing certificate in addition to the diploma on program completion.
