Brockport / Nursing / RN-BSN

RN-BSN Program

RN-BSN Track

Please note that we do offer Statistics for Nurses for any accepted applicants who have yet to take statistics. You must complete all prerequisites including Nutrition or the Nutrition challenge exam before enrolling in Seminar I, Seminar II or Community Based Epidemiology. We do offer a nutrition challenge exam which will be available in the spring and fall semesters for enrolled students only. Further information will be available upon registration.

All nurses who begin the RN-BSN program in the Summer of 2015 will need to plan on attending PRO 306 (Bridge Course) which meets May 20 (9 am-5 pm) and May 27 (9 am-3 pm) at the Brockport campus. This is an overview course which ensures all students have the essential skills to succeed in the program. Please ensure you have allocated adequate time to complete the computer, math and written assignments for this short and labor-intensive two-week class. 

The dates for PRO 306 for Spring Semester starts are January 19 from 9 am to 5 pm and January 26 from 9 am to 3 pm. Attendance on both of these days is mandatory.

Dates for the Fall Epidemiology Clinical course are: October 23, November 13, and December 4. All three days are mandatory. You may not miss any days. All will take place at the Brockport campus from 9 am to 5 pm.

Spring 2016 Epidemiology clinical is being held online.

All students accepted into the program must complete a minimum of 30 credits at Brockport. Most students will need 30–36 credits. Full-time students may anticipate completion in one full calendar year (12 months). The following courses are required of all students regardless of previous coursework.

At this time, we are accepting statistical methods courses from other colleges. At a future date, to be determined, we will be requiring all RNs to take our Statistics for Nursing course. We highly recommend that you take PRO 258 at Brockport if you need statistics. The credits will go toward meeting the residency requirement. PRO 258 should be taken during the first semester of nursing course work. Potential applicants may take the course prior to program admission provided that a previous bachelor's degree has not been earned.

Please contact Dr. Lawrence at for enrollment information.
