About Macon State
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is offered by the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. It differs from the RN-BSN Completion Program in that it is structured more like other traditional four-year degrees and is designed for students not yet licensed as RNs.
For this "Pre-Licensure" BSN degree, students spend their first two years of full-time study taking the core curriculum, and then continue with nursing major coursework for the third and fourth years. Graduates of the program will be awarded the B.S. in Nursing and, once they qualify and pass the licensing exam, become RNs.
The BSN will appeal to students who are looking for a more traditional college experience. The program also may be suitable for those who already have bachelor's degrees in another major and are interested in nursing as a second career. These students, who already have the core curriculum, could earn a second bachelor's in nursing, using their previous educational experience.
