Second Degree BSN

Earn a BSN

Second degree students may choose to complete the traditional program. This program follows the traditional fall and spring semester and courses are taken over a three year period. Second degree students may opt for this program because it is more compatible with their family and personal obligations. Also, they may prefer their coursework to be delivered in at a more traditional pace.
