ODU and Riverside College of Health Careers Partnership

The concurrent enrollment option blends RN-BSN course work throughout the AAS curriculum enabling qualified students to complete AAS requirements, take the NCLEX-RN©licensing exam, and complete requirements for the BSN in just one or two additional semesters following completion of the AAS. A curriculum plan is coordinated with the approval of Riverside College of Health Careers that enables students to enroll in RN-BSN courses during each semester of the AAS curriculum. Following graduation from the AAS program, students would be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN©licensing exam. Upon licensure as a registered nurse and successful completion of all remaining BSN courses, students in the concurrent enrollment option would be awarded 33 additional credits in the BSN curriculum (as credit for the AAS nursing coursework at no tuition cost) and the BSN degree.
