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, nursing student checks the eyes of a nursing modelwill 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 minimum number of units that must be completed at Towson is 30; this may vary depending on the number of credits transferred from the community college. To ensure successful progress through the Nursing major, students must complete prerequisite courses: General Chemistry, Nutrition and Microbiology. If these courses were not part of the associate’s degree, they must be completed prior to full acceptance into the Nursing major—which could add additional units to the program. A statistics course is needed prior to enrolling in NURS 435. In addition an Ethics course is a Towson University requirement and will need to be completed before being awarded a bachelor’s degree from Towson University.

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.
