The Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) and Granite State College share a commitment to address the most pressing workforce development and health care needs of the State of New Hampshire. The “RN to BSN Pathway Program” was created in 2014 to provide a seamless, affordable, and efficient bridge between the State’s two public higher education systems for students pursuing a career in Nursing.
New Hampshire residents who are CCSNH graduates with a conferred Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) will receive scholarships that reduce the per-credit cost of tuition to a rate equal to the CCSNH tuition rate when they’re admitted into our RN to BSN Pathway Program.
Registered Nursing is the top occupation in terms of career growth. More than 45.1% of employers require new hires to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, while 79.6% express a strong preference for BSN graduates, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. Further career advancement into leadership positions can be achieved by pursuing a master’s in nursing.
