RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The set of questions and answers outlined below can help you learn more about our program, delivery method, application and admission process, financial aid options and how to succeed as an online student at UofL.
What are the benefits of online learning?
The biggest benefit of online learning is that you can work to earn your degree from your own home while raising a family, working full-time or experiencing particular life circumstances that make commuting to campus difficult or impossible. At UofL you are taught by the same world-class faculty as our on-campus students. You read the same books, do many of the same assignments and earn the same degrees. The biggest difference is that you are able to do it in a way best fits your lifestyle.
I am on active duty. Can I take online classes at UofL?
Yes! You can take online classes from anywhere in the world, provided you have consistent Internet access.
How can I receive 25 free credits?
By completing your portfolio online, UofL’s School of Nursing will award you 25 credit hours (equal to over $11,000 savings) to apply to your BSN degree absolutely free (no tuition cost).
I haven’t been back to school in awhile, how do I know if this is right for me?
One of the great things about online learning is that some of the typical classroom pressures and anxieties are no longer present. The nature of online learning puts everyone on a equal playing field—unless you choose to share, no one will know if you are 18 or 81.
Is the online degree different than the degree earned on campus?
No, there is no difference between the two. Your diploma will not indicate whether you attended college on campus or online and your credentials will be the same. In fact, learning online enables you to gain additional skills like time management, written communication or self-discipline, and helps you acquire the necessary credentials to move up in your organization, pursue a different career or reach your personal and professional development goals.
