Most of the total degree requirements can be transferred from accredited institutions. Coursework completed at community colleges or other accredited colleges and universities can be applied toward the degree, as can applicable courses taken at the University of Missouri—St. Louis, whether on or off campus. The BLS may serve as a terminal degree or as preparation for graduate school, professional school, or employment in business, government or industry.

Nursing Program

Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The UMSL College of Nursing recognizes registered nurses as busy adult learners who are licensed professionals, often with years of experience. The RN to BSN program offers registered nurses the opportunity to continue their education through flexible and convenient programs, without repeating courses and experiences commonly completed as part of an Associate's degree or diploma nursing program.

The RN to BSN plan of study is designed to be completed in six consecutive terms (four academic semesters and two summer terms), and takes two years to complete. Coursework for the two year program is offered via the Internet, on the UMSL campus, off-campus at selected hospitals and community colleges, or in telecommunication centers at convenient area locations. Students may attend classes one evening per week at an outreach site in the St. Louis area. Classes take place one evening per week from 6:00 pm to 8:40 pm. The day of the week will vary according to the location at which the program is being offered.
