RN to BSN Programs
RN to BSN Program Details
The RN to BS Option is designed for graduates of associate degree nursing programs and diploma programs. The Option is offered in a convenient on-line format to accommodate the needs of working RNs. The Option length is typically four semesters, though students may choose to complete courses at a slower progress (based on course availability). Students are admitted to the Option once each year for the fall semester.
BSN Program Details
The Traditional Option — Program for Licensure is designed for first degree-seeking students with no college experience. It is offered at the Edwardsville campus in primarily a face-to-face format. The School of Nursing prepares future nursing leaders as generalists in professional nursing; graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure as a registered nurse. The state-approved program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and provides a foundation for graduate education.
MSN Program Details
The goal of the SIUE School of Nursing graduate program is to prepare expert nurses for leadership in professional nursing practice and patient-centered health care delivery. Master’s degrees and post-master’s certificates are awarded in four specialty areas: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Health Care Nursing Administration (HCNA), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesia (CRNA) and Nurse Educator (NE).
Accelerated BSN Program Details
The Post-Baccalaureate Accelerated Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing option allows students with a bachelor's degree to attain a B.S. degree with a major in Nursing through 3 semesters and one summer session. It is an intense, defined curriculum with a combination of classroom instruction and clinical experiences for students seeking a second baccalaureate degree. Course work and clinical experiences are of the same high quality as the traditional first-degree baccalaureate progression, but taken at an accelerated pace. Graduates of this option are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure as a registered nurse. Students must be dedicated and willing to attend classes as many as five days a week and devote an appropriate amount of time to their studies in order to be successful with this option. The full-time program begins in August (fall semester). ABS students pay differential tuition and fees as approved by the SIUE Board of Trustees.
Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
The SIUE Post-Master's DNP program is designed for nurses holding a nursing master's degree in an advanced nursing practice specialty area or in health care administration. Guided by faculty mentors, DNP candidates enrich and deepen their specialty practice by engaging in transformative educational activities. Through experiential learning, self assessment and reflection, community engagement, interprofessional relationships and scientific inquiry, nurses emerge as leaders, transforming their practice and health care in self-identified areas of concern and influence. The program culminates in a doctoral project that reflects a synthesis of the knowledge and skills gained throughout the candidate's educational experience.
To facilitate learners' access to DNP education, the program is offered primarily online with intermittent, scheduled face-to-face learning experiences. All educational strategies focus on the development of meaningful relationships and scholarship competencies needed at the highest level of nursing practice.
