Overview of Programs

The School of Nursing offers an undergraduate program leading to the bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. There are three options for obtaining a BSN degree: traditional, RN-to-BSN for those who are already registered nurses, and the Veterans Access Program (VAP). All options require a foundation in basic sciences and humanities. Students in the traditional program apply to the School of Nursing in their sophomore year for admission to the Nursing major. RN-to-BSN and VAP students apply through a University process. The RN-to-BSN program offers working registered nurses (RNs) the opportunity to earn a BSN. Graduates are prepared to function independently and collaboratively within the healthcare system to deliver evidenced-based nursing care to individuals, families, groups, and communities.
