For High School Graduates

Program Description

The program offers direct entry to nursing for high school graduates who 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 freshman year. 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.
