Concurrent Enrollment Program
The Concurrent Enrollment information below is for currently enrolled Professional Nursing Diploma Program students.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program presents an opportunity for individuals to obtain a BSN in a timely manner while remaining in their local community. In this program, nursing students will complete upper division BSN nursing courses online at Old Dominion University while concurrently enrolled in prelicensure nursing courses in the Riverside Professional Nursing Program. This option offers a seamless progression from completion of the diploma program at Riverside to completion of the BSN at ODU. This is a rigorous program of study and is not intended for every student. Many students may prefer to complete the BSN after successful completion of the RN program.
Concurrent Enrollment Admission Eligibility:
- Confirmed admission to Riverside College of Health Careers Professional Nursing Program.
- Admission to Old Dominion University as a degree seeking student.
