Plan of Study

Students are required to earn 120 credits to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at UW Oshkosh. Academic advisers in the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC) will help determine how a student’s prior credits will transfer to fulfill any pre-nursing or general education credits.

Pre-nursing and general education courses must be fulfilled before starting the nursing coursework.  Students complete 30 additional credits in their BSN@Home coursework. BSN@Home nursing courses are offered in 7- and 14-week sections in the spring and fall semesters, and 4-to-8-week sections in summer semester.

BSN@Home courses are offered over fourteen as well as seven-week sessions in spring and fall.  Course schedules vary by university and are specific to each campus which is teaching the course.
