General education and science courses taught at Chatham's Shadyside Campus, prelicensure nursing courses at UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing, and RN-BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) 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 program for the final (senior) year.
