Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program

We created our BSN degree program with your needs in mind.

Class sizes are kept small to allow you a more personal experience with your professors.

We offer a combined curriculum, so you can take nursing-specific courses as early as the end of your first year of classes.

And we enable your growth as a nurse by educating you in real life scenarios to prepare you for patient interactions.

Overall, you need 122 total credit hours to earn your BSN, which includes 66 credit hours in nursing-specific courses and 56 credit hours in liberal arts and sciences courses.

What Students Can Expect

At our Addison campus, your classes will be taught by currently practicing nurses and seasoned professors who stay on top of the latest healthcare practices, principles and technology.

The Addison student community is very active, with a variety of organizations and clubs offering additional activities and chances for students to get involved.

You’ll leave traditional classrooms behind when you learn in our SIMCARE CENTER™. You’ll work with high-tech patient mannequins that bridge the gap between simulations and real-life scenarios.

As your education progresses, you’ll also take part in clinicals. You’ll work in live healthcare settings, where you’ll be guided by nurses who will act as your preceptors as you help real patients. These preceptors will be available to help you with procedures, answer questions and offer assistance as needed.

And through our Center for Academic Success (CAS), you can get help via tutoring, assessments, additional teaching and other educational aids.

Additional resources are available to help you earn your BSN, including:

  • Early Alert – We proactively identify students who are experiencing academic performance issues and reach out to increase student success.
  • ASPIRE – A personal-support program for students and their families to address issues with school or daily life. This service is provided at no-cost and is confidential.
