The baccalaureate program in nursing prepares individuals to practice competently within complex healthcare systems while demonstrating integrity, compassion, and justice in all aspects of their lives. Graduates are prepared to assume the roles of provider of care, designer/manager/coordinator of care, and a member of a profession.

The BS degree in nursing (BSN) is offered in two different formats, the traditional pre-licensure BSN and the RN-BSN completion.

The pre-licensure BSN requires successful completion of 63 hours of general education, worldview, elective, and nursing pre-requisite courses. The additional 61 hours of nursing core courses include NUR 311, NUR 312, NUR 313, NUR 314, NUR 315, NUR 321, NUR 322, NUR 323, NUR 411, NUR 412, NUR 413, NUR 421, NUR 422, NUR 423, and nursing electives.

The RN-BSN, is designed to assist registered nurses who wish to earn a BSN. The RN-BSN degree requires successful completion of 68 hours of general education, worldview, elective, and nursing pre-requisite courses. The 31 hours of nursing core courses for the RN-BSN include NRN 411, NRN 412, NRN 413, NRN 414, NRN 421, NRN 422, NRN 423, NRN 424, and nursing electives. The remaining 25 semester hours are awarded as credit by merit of RN licensure.

The Belhaven University RN to BSN Prep online program is designed to provide practicing registered nurses holding an associate degree or diploma in nursing, the opportunity to complete any pre-requisites courses that may be lacking to enter into the RN to BSN program.  This program is fully online.
