The College of Nursing offers three courses of study culminating in the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN).


Students interested in nursing may enter the University as:


Generic or transfer students

LPN to BSN students

RN-BSN students


All students must meet requirements for the BSN degree.


Generic BSN students enter the University as first year or transfer students. Following the successful completion of specified university core courses and nursing cognate courses, students apply for admission to the nursing major and enter the program as first semester sophomores. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to write the national licensing examination for registered nurses and pursue certification and graduate study in nursing.


The 120 semester hours in the program include 61 hours of nursing courses, 21 hours of nursing cognate courses, 38 hours of University General Education core courses. Nursing students must also satisfactorily complete the University community service/service learning requirement of 120 hours by the end of the junior year.


If transfer students were previously enrolled in a nursing program, a “letter of good standing” from that program is required. Because of clinical constraints, only a limited number of transfer students can be accepted into clinical courses.
