BSN Plan of Study
Sample -- Program of Study for students admitted fall 2017
The generic program of study for high school graduates leads to a BSN degree. Students may take four or five years to complete the curriculum, depending on readiness for this rigorous program of studies. Eligible students are admitted to pre-nursing in the freshman year. Multiple factors impact a new college student's successful completion of a rigorous schedule of arts and science courses in pre-nursing. Together with their academic advisors, students will schedule a program of pre-nursing that takes one or two academic years. A sample study plan demonstrates how a pre-nursing student might schedule the required courses.
Upon successful completion of the BSN curriculum, graduates will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX examination for licensure as a Registered Nursing (RN). Satisfactory completion of the NCLEX enables the graduate to practice as an RN in the state for which the examination was written.
The Faculty and Director of the Heritage University BSN Program have the right to determine a student's readiness to sit for the NCLEX-RN examination and the right of restrict testing until the student demonstrates readiness to pass this examination given by The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN)
The nursing program includes nursing, science and liberal arts courses. The ratio of clinical laboratory or practice hours to credit hours is 3 or 4 to 1, depending on complexity of clinical learning. Students may be registered for courses alternate semesters, depending upon clinical agency placement.
