School of Professional Nursing Practice
This school is home to BSN and Health Sciences degree programs. The health sciences program offers foundational courses for nursing and general preparation for entry level careers in a variety of healthcare settings. The BSN degree includes two options: traditional BSN and RN-BSN. An option in the traditional program includes the BSN Pathway for Veterans. The RN-BSN option enables Registered Nurses (RNs) with an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) to pursue the BSN degree. An alternate pathway in this option enables students who are currently enrolled in a Mississippi ADN program to concurrently take non-clinical RN-BSN courses.
BSN program options offered in this school include the traditional BSN and RN-BSN. The Health Sciences (health care studies) program is also offered.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing at The University of Southern Mississippi is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation and the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.
