About this Program

The BSN is a seven term, two year nursing degree program (outside of the general education core) designed for students seeking a traditional nursing degree. Students experience learning-intensive courses, along with clinical studies in conjunction with appropriate course work. The degree includes face-to-face clinical studies and labs.

This program does not require an LVN. Applicants must complete an application to the RN program, as well as the general admissions application for BSN studies.

All students must be cleared by the Texas Board of Nursing before they can be admitted to the nursing program.  (See eligibility requirements in the catalog). 

All nursing applications must have the following immunizations completed before they start the nursing program:

 • Hepatitis B, MMR, Varicella, and TDAP (DTP). Students will also need to complete their TB skin test and flu shot on an annual basis while in the program.

 • All nursing students will be required to have current health insurance and a BLS CPR card.
