The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program can be completed in eight regular semesters and two summer semester. It is a comprehensive degree, which does not require a minor. This plan assumes the following:
- No remedial coursework is required.
- The student does not fail any classes.
- The student does not change majors.
- The student must maintain full-time enrollment status.
Also, a four-year graduation plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that a student may bring with him or her upon admission to the University.
Until a student is accepted into and begins the program, he or she is considered a pre-nursing major.
