Dual Admission RN to B.S.N. Nursing Program ― UToledo and Saddleback College

What is a Dual Admission nursing program?

The RN-B.S.N. dual admission program at Saddleback College and The University of Toledo is the first of its kind within our institutions. You’ll earn an associate degree in applied science in nursing from Saddleback, while working toward your bachelor of science in nursing from UToledo. 

You have the flexibility to set your own pace. Our RN-B.S.N. program is a Competency-based Education Program. This means that you can move through the nursing courses at your own pace as you master the material. All classes must be completed by the end of the semester.
