High School Direct Entry in Nursing

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 BS 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, meet the state requirements for eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN), and obtain a sound basis for graduate study in nursing. Potential applicants to the program are highly encouraged to attend an open house event or an informational session. Please see the event calendar on the homepage for the upcoming events.
