Lakeview College of Nursing offers two campuses as well as different tracks to take in earning the BSN degree.  Students who do not already hold an RN license choose between our accelerated and traditional tracks once they have completed preliminary coursework and have been admitted into the program. Please contact us if you would like more information regarding our RN to BSN track.

It may be possible for students 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 and then to those wishing to pursue part-time study (if space is avalable). If a student is admitted under the part-time status an individualized degree plan will be formulated based upon the number of credit hours the student would like to take within a given semester. Please see the time limitation information on the duration of the BSN program and be aware of financial aid implications of pursuing part-time study.

Suggested "Traditional Track"

Lakeview's "Traditional Track" allows students to complete the suggested nursing curriculum for the BSN program within 21 months between fall and spring semesters. The traditional track does not include a summer session. Students may begin the "Traditional Track" either fall or spring semester.
