Registered nurses with ADN/ASN degrees or nursing diplomas qualify for RN to BSN programs. There are also ADN to BSN programs offered at some schools, since most nursing diploma programs have converted over to associate’s degree programs or just been discontinued.

Courses build on prior nursing education and cover new topics in professional nursing practice, critical thinking and writing, trends, theories and issues in the ever-changing nursing field, managed care, ethical issues and related topics.
