Prepare for Your Nursing Career at Our Nursing Program in Irving, Texas
At our Irving campus, you can take the first steps towards your nursing career with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited* Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program. We have temporarily moved our Irving BSN degree program to an online learning platform, with only approved clinical rotations and demonstrations being performed on-site.
Our BSN program does not have prerequisites. It’s designed to be finished in three years of year-round study – enabling you to earn your degree faster than at a traditional four-year institution. According to the Texas Center for Nursing Workforce Studies, the state's supply of registered nurses will fall short of demand each year through 2030. Earn your BSN to get started on a rewarding, fulfilling and in-demand career.
