Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) will complete four years of full-time study, consisting of general education course, nursing courses, and nursing clinicals. The first-year nursing curriculum consists of general education courses like Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, English, and Psychology.

Transition and transfer students will complete the first-year nursing curriculum, after which they will compete for any open spots into the sophomore year.
