Students transferring credits from the Virginia Community College System may also find this link helpful:

Our RN-BSN nursing courses are available online. The online format offers flexible scheduling around rotating shift-work.  Both nationally and state accredited, the BSN program consists of 120–126 semester credits; sixty-six (66) credits in the nursing major and 54-60 credits in liberal arts and sciences which fulfill the university’s general education requirements.

In addition to general education and non-nursing departmental requirements, students will complete 33 upper division nursing credits.  Registered nurses are awarded, at no cost, 33 credits toward the BSN for prior nursing education. Non-nursing credits are accepted in transfer from other colleges and universities. A grade of “C” or better is necessary for transfer credit. In some cases, students may receive additional transfer credit for nursing coursework. All students must complete 30 semester hours at ODU to be awarded a degree from ODU.  Fall, spring, and summer enrollment is available.
