Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Research
Designed for both freshmen and transfer students, the clinical track of the Full-Time Option consists of 2.5 years of nursing classes following completion of all general education coursework. A first-time freshman can expect to complete the entire degree program in 4 years (1.5 years of general education coursework and 2.5 years of nursing coursework).
Perfect for the busy non-traditional student who is seeking a new career and wanting to balance work and family commitments with academic goals, the clinical track of the Part-Time Option consists of 3.5 years of nursing classes following completion of all general education coursework. Lecture, lab, and clinical classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends.
Clinical experience is an integral part of the nursing curriculum. The UMSL College of Nursing has many clinical partners to provide graduate and undergraduate students with a broad range of experiences across different settings and populations.
"The courteousness of counselors, and the fact that I was able to transfer a lot of prerequisites for the nursing career, is what led me to choose UMSL. I transferred to UMSL from a Junior college."
- Jõse Hernandez, BSN Student
