I am currently looking to start a RN-BSN program in the Spring. I already hold a BS in Health Science, and just got my ASN in December. I wanted to get my BSN from the school I have my original BS from because many of the prerequisites I have already taken. But their program is RN to BS, not RN to BSN. What is the difference?? I’ve googed it, but I’m finding conflicting info. Thanks!

If the awarded degree is a bachelor's of science with a concentration in nursing, there are  no differences.
