The RN to BSN pathway is designed for individuals whose initial preparation was either an associate degree in nursing from a community college or a hospital-based diploma program, and who want to further their education with a BSN from Wayne State University. A current RN license is required prior to beginning coursework, however, there is no work requirement.

Students are admitted annually and coursework for each cohort begins in the fall. The length of the time to complete the degree is dependent on the number of transferable credits, but is designed to be completed in two years.

Location: Most classes are held at Schoolcraft College in Livonia. Some will take place on Wayne State's main campus in Midtown Detroit. Both campuses are easily accessible from Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw counties.
