Additional Program Information

Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the Bachelors program are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to earn their RN license. The College of Nursing will guide students through the Texas RN licensure process during their last semester in the BSN program.

Applicants are encouraged to review the following information very carefully before and throughout the application process.

CPR Certification

All students are required to have current Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification throughout their time in the program. If you do not have this certification, you must take a class.

Students are required to provide proof of certification.
