Core Curriculum Requirements for RN-to-BSN Degree Completion Program

In addition to the required nursing courses, RN-to-BSN degree-completion students will take one or two courses from the university’s Core Curriculum program.

The Core Curriculum is built around the philosophy that we, as a university, have a responsibility to help students grow in their learning to see how skills, knowledge, and values work together to help them make both a life and a living.

If you haven’t already taken liberal arts courses that can transfer towards the completion of your BSN degree, you can take them at North Park. See below some examples of our course offerings that meet the different fields of knowledge required by the University.
