RN-BSN: The Traditional Path

The traditional path is the best choice for most EKU Online RN-BSN students. It is designed for students who:

  • Want to focus on one course every 8 weeks, adding a second course occasionally to earn their BSN in about 2 years
  • Want the flexibility to start their degree in the fall (August), spring (January) or summer (May) term. Click here to read about the accelerated path.
