Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a high quality program that prepares individuals to be responsible and respected nursing professionals. Through our Bachelor of Science program options, you can choose the path that is best for you.
The pre-nursing program consists of two years of general education, prerequisites, and supporting courses needed for admission to the Traditional BSN or Accelerated BSN program options. The Traditional BSN option begins in either fall or spring semesters and the Accelerated BSN option only begins in the spring semester.
Traditional BSN Option
After you have completed the pre-nursing program, or if you are transferring with the required courses from another college or university, you will then apply to the Traditional BSN option to complete the remaining two years for the nursing degree. This program option begins in the fall and spring semesters.
The College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Barry University is fortunate to have an agreement with Baptist Health South Florida that offers Traditional BSN students, who are admitted to the BSN program, the option to apply for the Baptist Bond scholarship in exchange for an employment commitment upon graduation. This scholarship opportunity begins only in the fall semester.
Accelerated BSN Option
The Accelerated BSN option is a 15-month program that allows individuals with a non-nursing bachelor’s degree or higher to pursue a degree in nursing. This program begins in spring semester.
RN to BSN Option
If you are currently a registered nurse with an associate degree or state-approved diploma, and wish to earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, you would then apply to our 15-month RN to BSN program. This program begins in fall or spring semester, dependent upon onsite availability for the program.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Being accredited indicates our commitment to public approbation, attesting to the quality of the educational program and the continued commitment to support and improve the program.
