RN to BSN Program Details
Take your education -- and your career -- to the next level with the EARN program. The "Educational Advancement for Registered Nurses” (EARN) curriculum is designed for RNs who have a diploma or associate degree who desire to EARN their BSN. The program may be completed in 3 semesters of full time study.
The following assumptions guide teaching and learning in the EARN program:
-Learning is a shared experience.
-The RN student brings a unique persona to the learning experiences through life experiences, motivation, competency, culture, values, and beliefs.
-The RN students’ prior experiences (personal and professional) provide the foundation for learning/relearning.
-Adults relearn through identification and critical reflection of individual meaning perspectives.
-Learning activities that stimulate critical reflection of prior assumptions and beliefs and create a conflict in values and thinking can lead to a liberation or emancipation from instinctual, institutional, and environmental influences, thus resulting in perspective transformation.
Clinical experiences and hours are independently structured and vary according to course outcomes.
Admission for students begins in the summer semester. An individualized plan of study will be completed if you are interested in attending part time. (But please note, if you select the part-time option, you must complete all course work within five years).
To be eligible, you must have a 2.5 or higher grade-point average. You also need at least a C in all Prenursing courses. You cannot receive transfer credit for courses in which you had a D or F
BSN Program Details
The Auburn Montgomery Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is considered one of the best in the state.
Our graduates’ pass rates on the Registered Nurse licensure examination are well above state and national averages, which are typically in the mid-80 percent range. The Auburn Montgomery nursing program has consistently achieved pass rates in the 90s.
The traditional four-year baccalaureate program has two components — a Lower Division and an Upper Division, each taking two years to complete if you attend full time.
The Lower Division consists of courses in the humanities and the biophysical and behavioral sciences. After you successfully complete this component, you may apply to the Upper Division, and if accepted, continue with a series of nursing courses and clinicals.
Once students have successfully completed the lower division prerequisite courses they must apply for admission to the upper division of the School of Nursing. School of Nursing applications are separate from the general university 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.
Admissions requirements include:
A minimum of a 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) grade point average on the required Lower Division courses.
Completion of each Lower Division course with at least a C. If a D or F is earned, you must retake the course. But grade adjustments or replacements are not allowed. Your grade is counted each time you take a course in calculating the “Nursing” GPA.
Candidates for admission will be ranked on the basis of their grade point average, interviewed, and the most qualified applicants will be offered admission. 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 3.3; the lowest GPA typically ranges from a 2.7-3.0.
