What are proficiency credits?

At Chamberlain, you’ll be awarded 77 proficiency credits from your clinical experience as a registered nurse. Additionally, you’ll have your transcript assessed for transfer credits that can cut down on general education courses you need to take before jumping into your advanced work. 

How long is the RN to BSN Option?

You can earn your RN to BSN in as few as three semesters of year-round, full-time enrollment. If you prefer to go at your own pace, you can also enroll part-time – or adjust your RN BSN course load for a session to best accommodate your schedule and other obligations.

What’s the difference between RN and BSN?

The main difference between RN and BSN is that a BSN is an educational degree, rather than a licensure or job title. You can pursue a BSN and RN at the same time through an entry-level program like Chamberlain’s 3-Year BSN degree. Alternately, you could become an RN through a diploma or associate degree program, and later return to school to complete your BSN through an RN to BSN online program.

Can I still work while earning my BSN?

Absolutely. If you’re already an RN, our RN to BSN Option is designed for busy, working nurses. You will have no mandatory log-in times, allowing you more flexibility to complete your weekly assignments according to your schedule.

Making School Work in Uncertain Times


There’s no doubt COVID-19 is affecting the way you see your future. That’s why we want to make it possible for nurses who are able, to continue their education.
