The School of Nursing offers the following tracks in the baccalaureate program: the traditional, the biobehavioral honors track, the accelerated B.S. and the R.N.-B.S. completion. Successful completion of curricular requirements results in a Bachelor of Science degree.
The applicant is responsible for seeking advice from the School of Nursing on courses taken prior to admission.
Students are assigned to a variety of hospitals and health agencies. Occasionally, these assignments may include evening hours or weekends. Transportation is sometimes available to reach these assignments, but use of an automobile is often necessary, especially in community health nursing. Transportation costs vary widely each semester and may range from very little to more than $100. Students who anticipate need of financial assistance for transportation costs should apply to the Office of Financial Aid in advance.
