Program Description

The Hawai's Statewide Nursing Consortium (HSNC) Bachelor of Science (BS) in Nursing program for associate degree nursing (ADN) graduates is a statewide continuing consortium nursing curriculum available to UH students from Maui College, Kauaʻi Community College, and beginning in fall 2015, Kapiʻolani Community College. The HSNC program is designed to provide an efficient bridge to the baccalaureate for the RN with an associate degree. The program builds upon initial nursing preparation with coursework to enhance professional development, prepare for a broader scope of practice, and provide an increased understanding of the cultural, economic, and social issues that affect the delivery of safe, quality patient care [1].

Students may enter the program in the fall (January 5th deadline) or spring (July 1st deadline); taking courses via the Hawaiʻi Interactive Television Service (HITS) while balancing work and family responsibilities. With the BS degree, the student is prepared for graduate education and continued career development.
