For RNs admitted into the program, advanced placement by transfer of credit is offered for general education and nursing courses from other accredited institutions of higher education. Students may complete the program on a full-time or part-time basis. Upon completion of prerequisite courses, students may complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in two semesters of full-time study and/or three to six semesters of part-time study.
BSN Program Details
The Traditional Four-Year Track in Nursing at Shenandoah University is designed for students beginning the BSN program as freshmen. These students are interested in the full, traditional college experience that includes living on campus and fully participating in campus life. Nursing courses begin in the first semester of study as a freshman and occur during every semester of the curriculum. Students have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to work in health care during summers. Technology in the nursing program is integrated throughout the curriculum, therefore all nursing students participate in the computer technology program offered through the university.
RN to MSN Program Details
The RN to MSN Degree Option in the Division of Nursing enables students who are registered nurses without a BSN to obtain a MSN degree within one of four specialty areas: Nurse-Midwifery, Family Nurse Practitioner, Health Systems Management, and Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner. Students in the RN to MSN program take 13 credits of undergraduate nursing Bridge Courses and between 37-48 credits of graduate courses, depending on their specialty area. Graduates have the competencies taught in their chosen specialty and, for the Nurse-Midwifery and Family Nurse Practitioner specialties, are eligible to take the appropriate national certification exams.
