The Scott and White College of Nursing offers both a generic four-year BSN degree for those seeking initial licensure as a Registered Nurse as well as a track for the Associate degree prepared nurse who wishes to obtain the Bachelor of Science degree in nursing.
Approximately 25% of the nursing classes are composed of adult learners who have degrees in other fields who are making a career change. Thus, classes are diverse in terms of age, background, and life experiences which makes for a wonderful opportunity for shared learning.
The nursing program is approved by the Texas State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the accreditation body for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Graduates of the program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensing examination. Graduates are also eligible to pursue a graduate degree if they decide to pursue an advanced practice role.
