The TWU College of Nursing offers a separate track within the baccalaureate program for Registered Nurses. The RN BS Program plan is designed to facilitate educational mobility for those registered nurses who wish to earn the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing. The curriculum offers courses that are fully online or you may choose to participate in the Collin Higher Education Center option, which includes some face-to-face classes. This provides the registered nurse both the convenience of online and ongoing interaction with course faculty. The upper division courses can be completed in one calendar year of full-time study, although many students elect to complete the program on a part-time basis.
Sample Degree Plan
The new campus of Collin Higher Education Center (CHEC) is located at the northeast corner of Central Expressway and Hwy 121 in McKinney.
