Going back to school is a big step for any student, especially for registered nurses who are choosing to further their education and career by earning their RN to BSN degree. These working professionals need to be fully in the know about their program so that they can accommodate their life at home and work to their new school schedule.

Grand Canyon University believes in always being transparent to students and works to earn our students’ trust by putting the student first. At GCU we honor your academic and professional goals and work alongside you to achieve them. Here are a few resources that GCU has designed for potential and current students to create a safe, trustworthy environment. These tools make it easy to enroll in our RN to BSN program and start on the path to earning your degree!

Lopes Credit Evaluation

The Lopes Credit Evaluation is a tool that GCU university counselors have created to aid students in the transfer process. All you have to do is fill out your information regarding your previous schooling and area of interest, and the number of credits that will transfer between your former college or university and GCU will be evaluated and reported back to you. This way, you are aware of what courses and credits you will still need to complete at GCU in order to earn your degree. Plus, GCU accepts up to 90 transfer credits (only 84 can be lower division) into your RN to BSN degree program, making it easy to earn your bachelor’s degree! If you have less than 90 credits to transfer, fast-track options are still available to help you earn your degree in less time. Speak with a university counselor for more information.

Net Price Calculator

GCU offers cost estimator tools to provide you with a general estimation of the cost of attendance. This includes tuition rates, required fees, books and supplies. These helpful estimation tools help you determine the cost investment associated with your RN to BSN degree program and provide you with more transparency upfront.

Upfront Time to Completion

Lastly, GCU is transparent regarding the time it will take you to complete your degree program. Your university counselor will work with you to discuss the RN to BSN degree and how you can complete the program in as few as 16 months, taking just one course at a time in the evening or online.

Grand Canyon University not only provides these resources and tools, but is also eager to interact with you and answer any other questions about your degree program! GCU is on your side and proud to help you advance your education in a way that is convenient and transparent.

The College of Nursing and Health Care Professions can help you take the next step in advancing your nursing career. To learn more about the RN to BSN program, visit our website or click the Request More Information button on the page.
