Bachelor of Science in Nursing – General Information

The UCA School of Nursing Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program has one admission per year. Students declare pre-nursing as a major and complete 45 credit hours of prerequisite courses prior to applying to the nursing major. Applications will be accepted each Fall term. Students will be conditionally admitted in the Fall, to begin the following Summer II term, once the remaining non-nursing courses are successfully completed in the Spring term. If admitted into the major, it is 2 years (1 summer and 4 semesters) in length.

Admission to the BSN is competitive and selective. Students are ranked by GPA and successfully completed prerequisites. Preference is given to UCA students.
