Post-Licensure BSN Program - RN to BSN Online Track

The post-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree track is for students who have earned an associate degree in nursing; who hold an unencumbered Registered Nurse (RN) license; or who are recent graduates from an ADN program and are able to obtain an RN license within 7 weeks of acceptance into the program. The program is offered in a 100% online format and includes both indirect and practice experiences.

Pre-Licensure BSN Program - Full Time Track

The pre-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree tracks are for students who do not already have an associates degree in nursing and/or who are not already a practicing registered nurse. During the application process, students may apply for either a full- or part-time track in pursuit of a BSN. The full-time track is for students who prefer to continue in the academic setting at a full-time pace which is >12 credits per semester. Degree completion in the full-time track can typically be achieved in 5 semesters, including summers.

Pre-Licensure BSN Program Admission

 

Fall 2024 pre-licensure applications have now closed. In an attempt to accommodate the admission of all qualified pre-licensure applicants, we have added a full-time evening shift cohort starting Fall 2024 semester. The Fall 2024 waitlist will be utilized to fill available seats in all cohorts should the number of qualified applicants be less than the number of seats available. If you meet eligibility requirements to apply to the pre-licensure BSN program for Fall 2024 start, we encourage you to complete an application by clicking on the “Apply for Waitlist” button below.

Waitlist applications will be accepted until Thursday, July 25, 2024, at 12 noon, or until all cohorts are filled.

Eligible applicants will be placed on the waitlist for the Fall 2024 nursing program consideration. If offered admission to the Fall 2024 nursing program, acceptance requires in-person attendance to two days of orientations. Day one of orientation will be held on Friday, July 26th, and day two of orientation will be held on Friday, August 23rd. If applying for Fall 2024 admission, please hold these two dates available, as attendance is mandatory.

To begin your waitlist application, please go to the Fall 2024 Pre-licensure BSN Application Instructions to start the application process. The link to begin the waitlist application is available in the application instructions. Please read all instructions carefully and gather all required documentation before beginning your application.
