For High School Graduates from the Class of 2024

Program Description

The program offers direct entry to nursing for newly graduating high school students that are dedicated to completing their Bachelor of Science in nursing degree in four years. Students can have confidence that they have been admitted to the nursing program while they complete their prerequisite classes in a cohort-based learning model. Students enter the program in the fall of their first year of college and are expected to meet all continuation requirements. With the Bachelor of Science degree, the student is prepared to proceed to graduate education and pursue career development.

The Bachelor of Science degree prepares beginning-level generalist professional nurses to deliver care to individuals in a variety of health-care settings, and meet the state requirements for eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN).  Potential applicants to the program are highly encouraged to attend an open house event or an informational session. Please visit the event page for upcoming events.
