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. RN-to-BSN students apply through a University process. The RN-to-BSN program offers working registered nurses (RNs) the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (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.
