About Us

There is no special requirement for admission to the online RN-to-BSN program at Loyola University Chicago's Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing. Since we acknowledge an associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a diploma from a recognized institution and your professional development, you can look forward to completing the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in a minimum of three semesters.

Our online RN-to-BSN program accepts up to 66 transfer credits for RN-BSN Core requirements and nursing courses. We award up to 25 credit hours for prior learning through a professional nursing e-portfolio. This program structure is particularly suited for nurses looking to advance their professional careers. We also offer online elective courses for those who need to complete additional credits.

Loyola’s Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing maintains very high standards of professional education. We were the first accredited collegiate nursing school in Illinois in 1935. Take advantage of active work experience to advance your education and career through a convenient online RN-to-BSN program at Loyola.
