Considered one of the best in the state, the AUM Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a traditional, four-year baccalaureate program with two full-time, two-year components: lower division (Pre-nursing) and upper division (Nursing).
The number of students admitted to upper division is limited, and applicants are chosen based on their academic performance in the lower division prerequisites, Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) score, an interview, math and science grades, and amount of AUM credit earned.
The convenient RN to BSN program is for registered nurses who have an associate’s degree and are seeking a BSN degree. This program is offered totally online and may be completed in three semesters of full-time study.
BSN graduates are prepared to provide comprehensive care in a variety of acute, community and rehabilitative settings. The baccalaureate curriculum provides a solid foundation for graduate study. All nursing program options have been developed consistent with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (2008) and The Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing (2011). The DNP program has been developed consistent with The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice (AACN, 2006). Specific program curricula can be found in the AUM catalog.
