The Blinn College District offers a variety of transfer opportunities for registered nurses (RNs) who earn their associate degree through Blinn to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and beyond.
Sam Houston State University RN-to-BSN Program
The Blinn College District Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program and Sam Houston State University (SHSU) School of Nursing have partnered to offer an accelerated RN-to-BSN pathway for eligible Blinn ADN students. Nursing students who have completed at least one semester of Blinn’s ADN Program can begin taking courses at SHSU in the summer to earn credit toward their BSN degree. Upon completion of Blinn’s ADN Program, qualifying students transition into SHSU’s School of Nursing and complete the BSN Program coursework. The program offers flexible scheduling through SHSU’s fully online classes and helps students reduce tuition and fees by completing three years of their educational requirements at Blinn.
RELLIS Campus Offerings
Registered nurses who hold an Associate Degree in Nursing can enroll in the RN-to-BSN Program offered by Prairie View A&M University’s College of Nursing at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan. The program is largely offered online with key laboratory components utilizing interactive simulation technology at the RELLIS Campus.
In addition to its partnership with SHSU and Prairie View A&M, Blinn’s ADN Program has transfer articulation agreements in place with Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Texas at Tyler, and the University of Texas Medical Branch.
