Graduates of the RN-to-BSN program at OSU will have completed a total of 120 semester credit hours, comprised of 60 credits of core curriculum prerequisites and 60 credits of nursing major-specific credits.

The nursing major consists of the 30-35 credits of OSU BSN courses and 30 credits** awarded through a portfolio review of your accredited associate's degree or diploma nursing program.

**These courses are eligible for credit by portfolio from approved nursing programs.
† The last 30 credit hours of BSN courses must be completed at OSU.

The first 60 credits are core curriculum prerequisite liberal arts and science courses. There is no expiration date on academic credit, and you have the option of completing all 60 credit hours of these courses at the regionally accredited community college or university of your choice. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 is required for admission.
