Traditional BSN

The School of Nursing’s undergraduate nursing program has patient-centered care at the core of the curriculum. The program is intense and demanding. Students must complete all prerequisite courses before taking the nursing courses, which are offered during three consecutive 15-week semesters. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing prepares students for entry level nursing practice, as well as future graduate study.

RN-BSN

The Degree Completion (RN to BSN) track is for individuals who are working as registered nurses and want to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Course work can be completed within 1 year of full-time study. Upper division course credit is offered via transcript evaluation from an applicant’s Associate Degree in Nursing program. Within this track, the student has the option of completing 9 credit hours at the graduate level which allows the RN-BSN student to have an accelerated option in our graduate program should they decide to apply to our graduate program after completing the RN-BSN track. Start of program contingent upon class size.
