* Conditional Admission to RN-BSN to MSN Option: Students admitted to the RN-BSN to MSN option are admitted to the MSN program under conditional status. Students take one graduate level course (NR-504) and must achieve a "B" or higher to be accepted for full admission to the MSN program. Students who take NR-504 and fail to achieve a "B" or higher will be dismissed from the MSN program. In the event the student is dismissed from the MSN program and is in good standing with the College, he/she may return to the RN-BSN option. 

Licensure Requirements: Chamberlain is committed to preparing graduates for professional nursing practice. To achieve this goal, students in the RN to BSN option and the LPN to RN Bridge option must maintain a current, active license to practice nursing in the U.S. or in a jurisdiction that is an associate member of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). All students must maintain licensure throughout the program of study. Failure to do so will result in a dismissal from the College.
