Full-Time Course of Study
Designed for both freshmen and transfer students, the clinical track of the Traditional program consists of successfully completing general education and nursing coursework. First-time freshmen (Traditional Track and Guaranteed Clinical Track) can expect to complete the entire degree program in 4 years: 2 years of general education coursework, and 2 years of nursing clinical coursework. The College of Nursing also welcomes transfer students. The length of time and number of courses required before applying to the clinical major will vary based on the number and types of credits transferred in.
"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
