All RN-BSN students receive 44 hours of Advanced Standing Credit during their last semester to satisfy nursing requirements. Students are eligible to receive federal funding for up to 150 percent of a program's published length (i.e. for a 120 hour program, the maximum attempted hours is 180).
BSN Program Details
The Nursing Program consists of four academic years. Students enter the program as pre-nursing majors and must complete the first three semesters of a pre-nursing curriculum consisting of General Education courses and nursing prerequisites. Students then apply for admission to the last five semesters which include 71 semester hours of upper-division nursing courses. When a student applies for admission to the last five semesters and is accepted and becomes enrolled, he/she is then classified as a Nursing major. The number of students accepted into the nursing courses is limited, making the application process competitive.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are awarded the B.S.N. and become eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure.
Pre-nursing students enrolled in the University and pursuing the first three semesters of the curriculum should maintain a minimum 2.80 cumulative grade point average and are required to earn no less than a C (2.00) in any prerequisite course. Nursing clinicals may be offered in evening, night, or weekend shifts.
MSN Program Details
The Master of Science in Nursing Degree (MSN), is offered through the Regent’s Online Degree Program (RODP), and is delivered following the standard protocol established for the delivery of RODP courses and programs. Courses are offered each semester (fall, spring, and summer) through all six TBR universities. The program has been approved by each participating institution, and by the RODP Curriculum and Oversight Committees. In addition, the program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing, the Tennessee Board of Regents and the Tennessee Higher Education Commission . The MSN-RODP will be accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission in academic year 2005-2006, prior to the graduation of the first class.
