Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN)
The Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree requirements can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Eligible candidates for the BSN program are qualified high school graduates. The basic undergraduate program includes four years of study and is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice as a professional nurse generalist upon graduation. The general and professional education provides a basis for the graduate to progress to positions of increasing responsibility and to undertake graduate study. Upon the successful completion of their program of studies, graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure.
Second Degree BSN
The Second Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing program enables a non-nurse with a baccalaureate degree to obtain a BSN in one year. After 12 month of intensive full-time study, during which time all requirements for a BSN degree are met, students are eligible to take the nursing licensure examination.
