Welcome to the School of Nursing

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NURSING (BSN)

APSU nursing students enjoy a reputation of excellence through employment with agencies nationwide. The diverse student body includes traditional and non-traditional students, second degree students, and former military personnel.

APSU offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree with two options.

  •          The traditional BSN option is for those who do not have a previous Registered nursing (RN) degree, as well as those who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing. This option is available for full-time students and is offered in the classroom setting on-campus.

  •          The RN-BSN option is for licensed Registered Nurses (RNs) who have their Associate’s Degree in Nursing. The program can be completed completely online and is structured so that students can complete courses full or part time as they desire.

For more information about these options, please use the links to the left.

MASTERS OF SCIENCE IN NURSING (MSN)

Graduate students in the APSU School of Nursing may pursue a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree offered through the Regents Online Degree Program (RODP). This program is a collaborative effort among Universities in the Tennessee Board of Regents system to educate nurses and fill nursing shortages in the health care industry. There are currently four concentrations available with multiple entry options. For more information about these options, please use the links to the left.
