COMMON RN to BSN QUESTIONS


Can I still apply if I don’t have my RN license, but am planning to get it before the semester starts?

Candidates who have not yet licensed at the time of application are encouraged to license at the first opportunity after graduation and must submit the RN license to Health Programs Outreach prior to any clinical course.

Decisions will be sent out four weeks after  the application deadline.

NURS 327 has been replaced by NURS 340: Promoting Health and Wellness in the Aging Adult. NURS 327 or NURS 340 fulfill the requirements for graduation. If you have already taken NURS 327, you are not eligible for NURS 340.

Your emphasis must be declared as “BSN”, not "PBSN" prior to beginning clinical courses. This means that you have a current RN license. If you do not have an RN License, you will need to defer from the program until your license is obtained. If you do have your RN License, email a copy of your license to HPO@byui.edu.

The ADVI or registration hold has been placed on your account due to not having required immunization/ documentation (license, CPR card) turned in or for non-compliance (ie BSN plan). Until this is corrected, the hold will remain on the account. Contact HPO@byui.edu if you have any questions.

No, clinical hours are completed through projects and will not include contact with patients.

The RN to BSN uniform requirements are listed under the RN to BSN Clinical webpage under "RN to BSN Clinical Professional Dress".

All clinicals have the same number of hours required. 

To receive a name badge you must email a passport-like picture (plain background & from the shoulders up) to the Health Programs Outreach Office at HPO@byui.edu. In the email, you must include an address for the badge to be sent.

Yes!  With the project option, there are requirements in which you will represent BYU-I Nursing in the community. 

You may email Health Programs Outreach at: HPO@byui.edu, and verify that they have received it and that it has been approved.

Vertical Escrow Credits and the $30 fee will not appear on your transcripts until grades have been posted, which for the 3 semester students will be  after graduation. It is strongly suggested to place $30 in your account and it will be taken out automatically.  For the 6 semester students, it will be visible when grades post after your 5th semester.

Try to search using only the number of the course code. ie. Leave everything blank and enter 316 (or whatever your course code is) in the course code search box

Yes. Going through our link to Truscreen is our way to verify the background check.
