Nursing Course Descriptions

The Nursing program offers an accredited curriculum in nursing leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The program offers two pathways for the BSN: a traditional (generic pathway) for students wishing to become registered nurses, and an accelerated pathway for associate degree or diploma prepared registered nurses who wish to earn a BSN (RN-BSN: Alternate Pathway). Additionally, the RN-MSN program is designed for the Associate's degree or Diploma prepared registered nurse who is interested in graduate nursing education in preparation for an advanced nursing role as a nurse leader.

The undergraduate nursing program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). For information on CCNE accreditation go to
