Students can become part of the College of Nursing by applying for either the Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) program or the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) in Nursing Practice Innovation. Fall classes for both programs start Aug. 19.

“We hope students will take advantage of this additional time to complete their application and join us this fall,” said Cindy Weston, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, CHSE, FAANP, FAAN, founding dean of the college. “We’re even offering nursing scholarships and awards that may cover up to 100% of out-of-pocket tuition costs for our first nursing students to show our commitment to affordable education.”

The RN to BSN is for registered nurses with an associate degree whose next step is to earn a BSN. Students can earn their degree in two, three or four semesters after completing 30 credit hours. Coursework will be delivered primarily online with some clinical experiences provided at HSC’s on-campus Regional Simulation Center.

The MSN in Nursing Practice Innovation is for nursing professionals with a BSN who want to continue and expand their education. It will incorporate five, 16-week semesters and condensed 12-week summer semesters. A part-time option also is available, extending the program to seven semesters. In addition, students will have the flexibility to choose one of nine specialized elective tracks.

Interested students should submit their application through the NursingCAS application service by 10:59 p.m. CST July 15. Supplemental items, such as transcripts and letters of recommendation, should be uploaded by July 29.
