The Passan School of Nursing, established in recognition of the growing demand for the University’s array of nursing programs both regionally and nationally, houses a multitude of accredited undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. Students of nursing may matriculate directly into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing or from careers as LPNs or RNs. Students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in another discipline and wish to pursue a career in the nursing profession may compete for a seat in the Accelerated Baccalaureate Program for Second Degree Students. Practicing professional nurses may choose to pursue the RN-MSN program, which leads to an advanced practice master’s degree. In addition, a Doctorate of Nursing Practice is offered in the School of Nursing. A student may enter this program post-BSN or post-MSN.
