Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When will classes start?
Students are admitted twice per year with classes beginning in August  (fall start) and January (spring start).

Q: What is the format for the classes?
Classes will be taught in a hybrid format. This means that each class will be mostly online with two visits to the nursing campus for each class. Typically, one visit will be the first week of classes and the second visit will be sometime toward the end of the course. This will depend on the course and the instructor, but you will be notified of the day and time before classes begin.

Q: Where is the nursing campus?
The School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences building is located on Technology Dr. between Hwy. K and Winghaven in Dardenne Prairie. Directions are available here.

Q: What is the timeframe for each class?
Most nursing classes will be taught in 8 weeks as opposed to the entire 16 week semester. This will allow the student to focus on one or two classes at a time each semester. The only exception to this is NUR  45000 - Community Health and Health Promotion, which will be taught over the entire semester because of the nature of community health and the inclusion of a community health project.  General education courses are taught over both 8 and 16 weeks depending on the course and term.

Q:  Will my previous courses transfer?
Each student will receive 35 credit hours as transfer for nursing courses. General education courses will be individually evaluated from transcripts received from previous coursework for transferability to satisfy general education requirements at Lindenwood University.

Q:  How long will it take to get my degree?
Completion of your degree will depend on how many courses you take each semester and how many general education courses you have left to take. Sample plans of study based on the number of general education courses required are available online. Typically, students can finish the program part-time within two to three years.  A faculty advisor will create a plan of study can provide a more precise estimate of timing for degree completion upon request. 

Q: What is the cost of my education at Lindenwood University?
Cost of degree completion will vary depending on several factors including the number of general education courses remaining in your degree plan, potential reimbursement from your employer, etc. In addition, a number of scholarships and financial incentives are available to RN to BSN completion students. Contact admissions/financial aid to talk about creating an affordable plan to complete your degree.
