RN to BSN Curriculum FAQs

How often are courses offered?

Every course listed as part of the RN to BSN option is offered each session.

Why do I have to take liberal arts and sciences courses?

Liberal arts and sciences courses are a part of any bachelor’s degree program. They are meant to broaden and deepen your learning experience which will in turn enhance your professional practice as a nurse.

What are the class sizes?

Chamberlain faculty-to-student ratios average 1:25 (or less) in the classroom.

Do I have to complete a clinical?

Practice experiences are woven throughout the courses and can often be accomplished on the job, at your workplace. This means you will have professional clinical experiences, but will not experience clinical rotations like you did when you went to school to become a nurse. Students who reside in the state of Tennessee will experience a more traditional clinical experience as part of their Community Health Nursing course.

What are proficiency credits?

Proficiency credits are a block of credits that encompass your diploma or associate degree in nursing and your professional experience as an RN. Upon acceptance into the RN to BSN option you will be awarded 77 proficiency credits for your nursing experience before you even begin the program and still have the option of transferring in additional coursework.

To learn more about proficiency credits, call an admission representative at 877.751.5783 or request more information.
