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. 30 additional USP general education credits are completed as part of the BSN@Home program.

BSN@Home courses are offered over 14 weeks as well as seven-week sessions in spring and fall. Summer semester course schedules vary by university, so pay close attention to the summer start dates for your “home” institution.
