The Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing Online RN to BSN Program is designed for working nurses who are balancing work, family, and the desire to advance their education in a flexible learning environment. The program builds on previous education and clinical experience to help further develop skills in leadership, evidence-based practice, and population health. Students work closely with a supportive team of academic and faculty advisors throughout the program. RN to BSN faculty are certified in online education.
Length of Program:
Transfer Credits: Free pre-admission transcript evaluations are offered by Linfield’s admission counselors to assist students in understanding how their transfer credits will be applied to their BSN. Official evaluations are completed by the Registrar’s office once the student applies for admission and submits official transcripts from all institutions attended.
International Transcripts: Applicants with international credentials will need to provide official or certified copies of academic records and a credential evaluation from a certified credentialing agency. Syllabi or course descriptions may be requested in order to determine if credits can be applied to prerequisites, general education, or electives.
BHMT will pay a program maximum of $16,500 on your behalf for the BHMT RN to BSN program. All available KP tuition reimbursement funds will be paid to BHMT to partially cover the RN to BSN program cost.
Residents of California may be responsible for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if this charge exceeds the lifetime $16,500 tuition cap. The STRF is a fund administered by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education that relieves or mitigates economic loss suffered by a student while enrolled in a qualifying institution. The STRF assessment rate is two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) per one thousand dollars ($1,000) of institutional charges.
It is your responsibility to confirm that courses/programs completed with BHMT resources meet your academic and career objectives and transfer into your desired school/program.
The pre-requisite courses are usually met within your Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. There is no expiry dates for previous credits.
Linfield University recognizes the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), if earned at a regionally accredited institution, as meeting the general education requirements for the RN to BSN program.
A free pre-admission transcript evaluation can be provided upon request prior to application submission. A review of general education requirements (if applicable) and prerequisite courses will be provided. Upon offer of admission, students will receive an official evaluation.
