Breckinridge School of Nursing is a for-profit Nursing School offered through ITT Technical Institute. The school offers a 100% Online RN to BSN option with classes starting year round. Courses are offered in 6 week or 12 weeks blocks depending on the course. There is also one clinical preceptor class that must be taken during the final quarter of study.
Cost: $426 per credit. This cost does include books and other fees. However, the actual cost is a bit more confusing. The entire Online BSN program consists of 180 credits. Of these 180, 36 of them are listed as “Unspecified General Education courses” and another 60 of them are listed as “Unspecified Core courses”. Assuming that a typical RN satisfies the requirements for General Education and Core courses, this leaves 84 credits that need to be taken from Breckinridge.
Total Cost: $35,784 = $426 x 84. This is a minimum. The true cost, based on how many credits you are allowed to transfer, is most likely significantly higher.
Time to Completion: The average full-time student takes 6-9 Quarters, or 18 to 27 months. Part-time options are also available.
Start Date(s): There are several rolling start dates throughout the year.
Clinical Requirement: Yes, there is one preceptor clinical requirement the final quarter of the program. During this time, you will complete 120 clinical hours in a healthcare setting. You are required to find, organize, and setup a preceptor and clinical setting.
