Registered Nurse Degree Completion Option (RN to BS)
The Department of Nursing participates in a statewide RN articulation model. No more than half of the baccalaureate degree, with a maximum of 60 non-nursing units, will be accepted at Towson from a community college. Nursing units will not be transferred. However, individuals with an active unencumbered Maryland or compact RN license articulating to the baccalaureate level are awarded a minimum of 30 upper-division nursing units in the program.
The total number of units to be completed is 30; however,
to ensure successful progress through the nursing major, students will need to complete General Chemistry, Nutrition and Microbiology. If these courses were not part of the associate’s degree, they must be completed prior to acceptance into the nursing major, which could add additional credits to the program. A Statistics course is needed prior to enrolling in NURS 435 Research in Nursing.
The baccalaureate Nursing program builds upon the student's previous learning, ensures a broad base in the liberal arts, and offers nursing courses that are designed to enhance professional nursing practice. RNs are advised to contact the department for assistance with admission and program planning.
