BSN stands for Bachelor of Science in Nursing, which is a 4-year degree-level program in nursing. Unlike associate’s degree and diploma nursing programs, which can be completed in two years or less, a BSN typically requires four years of study. A graduate of a BSN typically has more career opportunities available to them than the individual with the associate’s degree.
Joyce University offers two pre-licensure degree pathways to earn your BSN. With our accelerated BSN pathway, students can transfer up to 46 credits from their previous bachelor’s degree to earn your BSN in as little as 20 months. We also offer an accelerated pre-licensure BSN for first-time college students, which can be completed in as little as 3 years of year-round-study.
For pre-licensure nursing degree seekers interested in an advanced degree, we offer a Direct Path MSN which combines our accelerated BSN and MSN programs, with RN licensure in as few as 20 months and advanced placement into graduate coursework, thus allowing for undergraduate and graduate work simultaneously, resulting in an MSN degree with an emphasis in either Nursing Education or Executive Nurse Leadership.
