Nursing (Arizona State University)
The nursing program at Arizona State University offers a variety of options to help students get a Bachelor of Science in nursing based on their current needs and future goals.
The traditional pre-licensure nursing program requires students to complete at least 60 credit hours of course work in 16 months if taking classes year-round or 24 months if following an academic year schedule. After that time, graduates of the program may take the National Council Licensure Examination. Passing this exam earns the graduate a license to become a registered nurse.
The post-baccalaureate clinical nursing program is a full-time option that requires at least 30 credit hours and takes 12 months to complete. The option is for those who already have a bachelor’s degree in a different subject. Graduates may then take the exam and apply for a license.
The third option is for those who already have an associate degree in nursing. The program requires at least 30 credit hours and takes 14 to 24 months to complete.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
