Requirements for HCI’s BSN Degree

Are you interested in enrolling in HCI’s BSN degree program? Find out what the requirements are for HCI’s BSN degree, and you can be on your way to a career as a Registered Nurse in the medical field.

BSN Degree Entrance


Like most college programs, you should already have obtained your high school diploma or your GED. Have proof of your graduation by submitting your transcripts for review.

If you have completed other college courses or have an ADN, you must submit those transcripts as well. Your previous college credits could be transferred into the program. The RN-to-BSN program at HCI requires that you already have an ADN before enrolling in the program.

For the RN-to-BSN degree, nurses should have proof of a current nursing license. You must meet active RN requirements for entrance into the program.

You also need to submit an entrance application and agreement. Pay the application fee and follow all of the directions on the application. Students also need to review the Nursing Handbooks for clinicals and labs.

RNs need to complete and submit a medical form as well. The form covers your general health, immunizations, medical history and required diagnostics to enroll in the nursing program. This is required for clinicals and lab work.

An entrance test called the Test of Essential of Academic Skills (TEAS) is required at HCI. If you haven’t earned your ADN yet and need to enroll in the associates program first, then you will need to take this exam.

Potential students also need to have a complete background check and drug testing done before enrollment.


BSN Degree Technology Requirements


The courses are offered online, so the first technology requirement is to have access to a computer and internet. The computer should have Windows 2000, XP, Vista or later version on it. It should have a 233 MHz Premium Processor (minimum) to 733 MHz.

Other technology requirements include the following:

  • Microsoft Office 2000 Premium or later version
  • A printer
  • Email software, like Gmail, Outlook, AOL, or other
  • Any internet web browser, like Chrome Safari


BSN Degree Graduation Requirements


To graduate with a BSN degree, you must complete all required courses to the satisfaction of the college (a grade of “C” or higher). Your courses will go in depth into the nursing profession so that you can provide high-quality care to your patients. Be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills you gained through your education and training.

All financial obligations should be met. Your tuition and fees need to be paid in full in order to graduate with your BSN degree. Pay all outstanding fees by the time you are ready to graduate.

You must have 120 credit hours completed to graduate. Thirty of those credits must be earned at HCI.
