NSU Bachelor of Science in Nursing (for Registered Nurses)
The mission of the Nursing Program at Northeastern State University is to provide educational mobility for associate degree and diploma prepared nurses and to provide preparation for graduate education in nursing. The curriculum, designed to build on the students’ previous education and experience, prepares nurses for professional nursing practice. Major areas of emphasis include family nursing, community health, leadership, and research. Graduates are prepared to provide primary health care in diverse settings; to provide education to individuals, families, and community groups; and to continue lifelong learning.
The minimum time required to complete the program is one (1) academic year (one 8 week semester and two 16 week semesters), provided the student meets all other Nursing admission and University graduation requirements. Students working full-time typically complete the program in 4-6 semesters (two academic years). All nursing courses may be completed through an online option. The class schedules address the needs of many RNs who work full-time and attend school part-time.
This program leads to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree.
An Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree earned from Tulsa Community College waives the general education requirements with the exception of pre-requisites of the major. All students must have demonstrated English Proficiency to graduate.
