Admission to the RN-BSN program is open to nurses with an associate degree from a regionally accredited institution.
To apply, you need the following:
- Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50.
- Current RN license, or if a recent graduate, eligibility to sit for the NCLEX-RN.
- Official transcripts from all colleges/nursing programs attended.

Considerations for Nurses Who Don't Have an ASN
If you are an RN with a diploma, but not an ASN or don’t have college credits, you can apply to the RN-BSN program, but will need to take additional courses. You need to earn a minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in each class and a cumulative GPA of 2.50 before you can be admitted to the online RN-BSN completion program.
AHU also has a pathway for RN-BSN students who have diplomas or degrees from non-regionally accredited institutions. The pathway is also an option for students who have diplomas from schools located outside of the U.S. You may enter the RN-BSN program with bridge status, provided you have passed the NCLEX-RN exam.
If you have completed college credits at another regionally accredited institution, some of those credits might be eligible for transfer. An official evaluation of your previously completed courses will be conducted after admission to the program. Speak with an Admissions Coordinator to learn more about which credits could transfer.
