You must meet any additional requirements of the academic institution to which you are applying.

There are also state requirements that each candidate must meet. In Maryland, you need a copy of your compact state license. For convenience purposes, many of the institutions that offer RN to BSN programs also have part-time classes. This is mainly meant to cater to the practicing nurses who might not have the time to attend the full-time classroom lessons. The program curriculum has both the common subjects and some that depend on the institution that you are receiving training from. The common subjects include: Chemistry, Psychology, Microbiology, Physics, Anatomy, Nutrition, Physiology, Nursing Principles, Behavioral Science and the practical aspect of nursing.

Once you graduate with a BSN degree, you have the option of pursuing your studies further by enrolling in an MSN Program or continuing your career as a registered nurse.
