The School of Nursing undergraduate program offers a variety of programs that lead to becoming a registered nurse.
The Master's Entry into Professional Nursing (MEPN) is designed for individuals with a baccalaureate degree in another area who want to pursue a career in nursing. The program provides the student with a general foundation in nursing with additional skills in the application of evidence based practice and leadership. Upon completion of the program, the student receives both a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing Degree. Students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for registered nursing licensure. This is not an advanced practice nursing program.
