**Thomas Edison State University is providing RNs who enroll in its RN to BSN program this year with a new tuition option that lowers the net cost to $311 per credit.

TESU has created this tuition program to allow RNs to continue their education at the most affordable rate possible. We know that you have been working hard to keep our communities healthy, and this is our way to say ‘thank you.’ We also know that there is a positive correlation between patient outcomes and nurse education. Furthermore, earning your BSN degree enhances your career opportunities throughout the healthcare system.

We are committed to helping you earn your BSN degree. That commitment includes guaranteeing this tuition program for 48 months, as long as you successfully complete 12 credits in the RN to BSN program per academic year. (Please note: This credit requirement will be prorated for your first enrolled year to 6 credits if you enroll in the November 2022 term; or 3 credits if you enroll in the March 2023 term.)
