Pre-Licensure BSN

The pre-licensure baccalaureate nursing program at APSU is a four academic year program, with 1.5 years of gen pre-nursing courses, and five semesters of nursing courses. Students completing the program will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, and will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for registered nurse (RN) licensure. The School of Nursing consistently produces graduates who have high NCLEX-RN pass rates, often well above the state and national mean.

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.
