BSN Program Details
The basic professional nursing curriculum provides undergraduate education for students wishing to prepare for a career as a professional nurse. Graduates are awarded a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and are eligible to write the NCLEX-RN for licensure as a registered nurse.
A pre-professional program in Nursing Science is required of students seeking admission to the professional curriculum. The first two years of course work are designated as Pre-Nursing (NS). The upper-division Professional Nursing Curriculum (NUR) requires five semesters of study, including classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences.
Once students have successfully completed the lower division prerequisite courses they must apply for admission to the upper division of the School of Nursing. The application process is done in two steps. First, you must complete a University application, then once accepted you are eligible to complete a School of Nursing application. The number of students admitted to the upper division is limited, and applicants are chosen based on their academic performance in the lower division prerequisites and on an interview.
Admission requirements include:
Applicants must be accepted or readmitted to Auburn University in order to be eligible to complete Nursing application.
Applicants must earn a minimum GPA of a 2.5 on all college work attempted. Preference will be given to those with higher GPA’s. Admission decisions will be made on non-adjusted GPA’s.
Applicants must have successfully completed at least 3 of the following science pre-requisite courses to be eligible to apply.
Biology 1020,1021: Principles of Biology with Lab
Chemistry 1030,1031: Fundamentals of Chemistry I with Lab
Biology 3200: Microbiology with Lab
Biology 2500: Anatomy and Physiology I with Lab
Biology 2510: Anatomy and Physiology II with Lab
Applicants must complete all PNUR Pre-requisites and NURS 2020 prior to admission to the upper division program.
Applicants must complete science course within the last 5 years.
School of Nursing applications are separate from the general university applications and may be obtained on the website in December for Fall admission and in March for Spring admission. Applications for Fall admission must be submitted by February 1st, and applications for Spring admission must be submitted by May 1st.
The number of applicants exceeds available openings, so admission is competitive. Applicants are ranked by their GPA and interview, and the most qualified are selected. The average GPA of admitted students is about a 3.6; the lowest GPA typically ranges from a 3.0-3.3
Transfer students who would like an evaluation of their previous credit can complete the AUSON information sheet and request an evaluation. Students requesting evaluations must send unofficial copies of their transcripts to our office in addition to completing the information form.
