Pathway to BSN Program

Students in the Pathways to BSN program are admitted to the University’s undergraduate program with a major of Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies Nursing Specialization (also known as “Pre-Nursing.”) This admission to the University does not constitute admission to the BSN program but, rather, admission to the University with the understanding that students will complete the minimum admissions requirements to be considered for admissions into the BSN program. The Pre-Nursing students must complete prerequisites for the nursing major (BSN) to apply for acceptance into the BSN program and be eligible to take BSN courses. The BSN courses are full time and completed in two years with continuous enrollment; the duration for the entire program is four years. STU students meeting the minimum requirement will be given priority for admission.
