RN to BSN Application

The School of Nursing accepts students for the RN to BSN program for fall, spring, and summer semesters, but space is limited. We know you have a lot of choices when choosing a completion program and we appreciate your choice in UA Little Rock.

Acceptance to the university does not represent acceptance into the RN to BSN program, and vice versa.

Students with a BSN or equivalent from another country may not be eligible for a second BSN Degree. Please contact an Academic Counselor for more information.

Important details

  • The RN to BSN application is for recent AAS nursing graduates and registered nurses only.
  • We are happy to discuss the program with interested students and review unofficial copies of transcripts. Please call 501-916-5172 or email the Academic Counselor, Belinda Nix, if you would like to schedule an appointment.
  • We are currently accepting applications for Summer & Fall 2022. The summer deadline is May 23 and the fall deadline is August 22. Students must be fully admitted to the university before completing the BSN application. Expect admittance to the university to take a minimum of 7 days after all required documents are submitted.
