College of Nursing, Undergraduate

Purpose and Goals

The College of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) with RN-BSN and LVN-BSN concentrations. The BSN program is a four and a half year program which prepares individuals who can practice professional nursing in a variety of clinical settings, and who are prepared to continue their education through graduate studies. The upper division clinical studies component of the nursing program is based on prerequisite courses at the lower division, which may be completed at the main campus of Prairie View A&M University or transferred from another accredited college or university. A student seeking to declare pre-nursing as a major must be admitted into the university as defined in the university catalog. Licensed nurses can continue their education to achieve the BSN degree through the distance education program.
