The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program can be completed in eight regular semesters and two summer semesters. 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.
The grades students receive the first time they take the following courses will be considered during the nursing program admission process: chemistry, anatomy, and Math 135 (college algebra) or higher.
Below is a sample four-year schedule for the nursing program. This schedule should not replace meetings with an advisor but should serve only as a guide. To ensure students will meet all requirements for graduation, courses should be completed in exactly the order they are listed on this sample schedule. It is required to have all pre-nursing coursework completed or in progress by the time of application to the Generic BSN program. Students may enter the Generic BSN program with no more than 3 (three) credits of general education courses outstanding and NUR 472 to be incorporated into their Generic BSN course scheduling if accepted into the program.
Students should check out the course rotation before scheduling classes.
