Eligibility Requirements

The applicant must:

  • Have obtained an associate degree/diploma in nursing from an accredited program/school
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in all college course work
  • Hold a current and unrestricted license as a registered nurse in Oklahoma or designated state of residence in the U.S. (list license number on RN to BSN program application)

Students may apply to the program prior to completing their prerequisites; however, students are required to complete their prerequisites prior to starting the BSN courses with the exception of the D and I credit courses. These prerequisites are required as part of degree completion.
Acceptance into the program without full completion of application materials and prerequisites will be provisional. The terms of provisional acceptance will be outlined in the student’s acceptance letter. Students who fail to meet the provisional acceptance terms will forfeit their seat in the program and will need to reapply for consideration for subsequent terms.

Class size will be limited; therefore, additional consideration may be given to GPA, Science GPA and additional criteria established by the selection committee.

OSU RN to BSN Applicant Checklist

Nursing students from OSU-OKC and OSU-IT will be granted provisional acceptance to the program and, upon meeting the eligibility requirements, will attain full acceptance. Priority will be given to any eligible RN who has graduated from either OSU-OKC or OSU-IT.
