General education and science courses taught at Chatham's Shadyside Campus, prelicensure nursing courses at UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing, and RN-to-BSN courses online through Chatham University.
Once you complete the nursing diploma program at UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing you become eligible to take the NCLEX-RN (National Council for Licensing Examination of Registered Nurse) to obtain a license as a registered nurse (RN). You will officially become a Chatham RN-to-BSN student when you pass the NCLEX-RN during your third (junior) year.
After successfully passing the NCLEX-RN you will enter Chatham's Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited on-line RN-BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program for the final (senior) year.
