BSN

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree (BSN) is a four-year college degree that provides a liberal arts and sciences background. With a BSN degree you will:

  • Be able to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam for licensure as a registered, professional nurse
  • Become the preferred candidate for entry-level nursing positions
  • Achieve the beginning educational requirements for many management-level positions
  • Form the necessary foundation for opportunities at the master’s or doctoral level

Lakeview College of Nursing offers several BSN curriculum tracks to help you achieve your BSN degree at the pace and focus right for you. You may choose from one of these tracks once you have completed preliminary coursework and have been admitted into the program.

Part-Time Track

It may be possible to enroll on a part-time basis (fewer than 12 credit hours per semester). However, priority for admission (pre-licensure) is granted first to those wishing to pursue full-time study. If you are admitted with a part-time status an individualized degree plan will be formulated based upon the number of credit hours you would like to take within a given semester. Please contact us for further information.
