Pre-RN Option


The Pre-RN Option is aimed exclusively at eligible second level associate degree nursing students. This option will allow nursing students to earn credits toward their BSN on a part-time basis before completing their Associate Degree in Nursing. The Pre-RN course of study is initially denoted as a RN to BSN Major, so students benefiting from financial aid remain in a degree-seeking program.
The Pre-RN option includes specific upper division courses and HLT electives that include high profile contemporary topics. The Pre-RN students will enjoy the benefits of socialization and mentoring opportunities while taking courses with RN to BSN students. 

To begin the Pre-RN course of study, apply to the RN to BSN program and enter PENDING in place of RN license number.


WilmU faculty have real-world experience and understand the challenges of balancing career and educational demands. You'll get the rigor of a leading health professions and nursing degree program combined with unparalleled flexibility.
