Currently licensed RNs can prepare for a leadership role through our RN to BSN online program. Earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and move ahead in your nursing career with relevant nursing training and career-focused curriculum. The RN to BSN program allows you to earn your Nursing degree online with Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies on a schedule that works for you.

To meet the needs of more nursing professionals, Rasmussen College offers you two choices for how to pursue and pay for your RN to BSN. 

Subscription-based pricing means you pay one price—$4,250 per six-month term—and complete as many courses as you want in each six-month term.1 This option is ideal for students motivated to move quickly and maximize savings.

Per-credit pricing is designed for RNs who want to take a specific number of courses per term based on their schedules and budgets. Pay $229 per credit for a total of 70 credits plus $175 per course technology fees for a total of 17 courses plus 2 lab components.4

Both options are offered exclusively as competency-based education (CBE), meaning our RN to BSN program has a cutting-edge approach that prioritizes your learning over deadlines. The unique design of its courses allows you to show what you know as soon as you know it.
