The format and courses of the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions’ BSN are tailored to meet the needs of the RN adult learner and to maximize the strengths that the working RN possesses.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree courses are taught by practicing nurses and experts in their respective fields who share knowledge and experience in areas of clinical patient care, healthcare management and professional nursing practice and leadership. The BSN coursework helps you gain a comprehensive view of patient care principles to help you strengthen your ability to care for patients, take on more responsibilities in a hospital or healthcare organization or prepare to move on to a master’s degree program.
The BSN and MSN at GCU are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Select states may have additional requirements to meet their standards; reference your enrollment agreement or contact GCU for more information. GCU’s accredited program is aligned to standards established by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
All students must submit either acceptable high school or college transcripts to be considered for full admission into the University. Additionally, if students cannot meet the GPA requirements with their transcripts, but have test scores or a college-GPA that meets admissions requirements, students will be eligible for full admission. If both the degree-bearing transcript and the test scores do not meet admission requirements, students may be accepted with specifications.
