What is Pre-licensure bsn?

  1. Could any one clarify what this program is?
    Is it for someone with no pre-reqs? Do you get your bsn apon completing this program? Or does it just prepare you to go into the real BSN program? Idk, I am so confused.

    Prelicensure BSN is a program for those who are not RNs as opposed to an RN to BSN program. Most people apply to the BSN program after completing prerequisites just as with an ASN program. The RN to BSN program has a focus that is geared to the fact that the students are already practicing RNs.

    Hi, All
    I am working as an LVN now thinking of continuing my education to get RN/BSN
    I reside in north California. Is there any schools offer RN online programs, or hybrid. I am willing to travel for clinicals.
    One more question, What is pre-licensure BSN exactly, my understanding is that its like RN if I am not wrong.
    Please help me out.
    Thank you in advance.
