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 at Chatham.
You will officially become a Chatham RN-to-BSN student when you pass the NCLEX-RN during your third (junior) year. 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). After successfully passing the NCLEX-RN you will enter into Chatham's Commission on collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited on-line RN-BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program for the final two terms. You may work as a RN while completing the RN-BSN portion of Pathways to Nursing.
