Assuming a bike in running condition, that's about all you really need. Either a new rear hub to lace to the existing wheel, or a cheapie new rear wheel or wheelset. Add a cog, lockring, and single-stack chainring bolts, shorten the chain as appropriate, and you're set.
Note, though, that the process is much, much easier if you start with a bike that has horizontal rear dropouts.
