General Information

Admission to the Program

You can call from anywhere in the USA call toll free 1-800-452-4176, and we will connect you with an advisor who is knowledgeable about the degree or certificate program you are considering.

Prior college coursework is not required for admission. Most college credits with grades of C and higher from regionally accredited colleges will apply toward a Linfield degree.

Registered Nurses with an Associate Degree in Nursing:

As an RN with an unencumbered license, prior success in college courses where you have maintained a 2.75 or higher grade point average, and a recommendation form submitted from your supervisor, it’s easy for you to get started in the Online RN to BSN program at Linfield. Call toll free 800-452-4176 to get started or apply online.

RNs joining the Spring cohort are required to complete the RN-BSN online orientation.

You may complete the online orientation anytime between February 9 - 16, 2015. Your participation in the online orientation is tracked for completion. Further instructions will be sent to you upon your registration for NURS 308.

Integrated Experiential Learning (IEL) Course:

In the final course of the RN to BSN program, there is a Service Learning experience. The Service Learning activity is completed in the local community and is uniquely suited to the mission of Linfield College and to the community-based philosophy of the nursing curriculum.  The Service Learning experience is an approach to nursing leadership in the community that explores non-traditional sites and diverse experiences that provide valuable preparation for health promotion, cultural awareness, and leadership in our global community. Students have the opportunity to travel abroad to complete the Service Learning experience if they choose.
