Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Pursue your life’s work with a BSN, whether you already have a bachelor’s degree or are beginning your first.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Queens University of Charlotte is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
Our nursing students have an interest in the sciences and possess the physical and emotional strength to tackle the everyday challenges within healthcare. We offer rich opportunities for personal and professional development through courses in the humanities as well as nursing.
Queens University of Charlotte offers three bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) tracks:
- Traditional BSN - We invite students in high school and college to consider this program. Students can start nursing courses in the fall or spring terms. Students completing their first degree should be prepared to take additional courses to meet university graduation requirements.
- Accelerated BSN - Open only to students who currently hold a bachelor’s degree, this program starts in the summer (mid-May) and will take three semesters to complete - summer, fall and spring (one year).
As a traditional or accelerated nursing student, you will complete 58 hours of nursing courses and approximately 450 clinical hours in the areas of basic and advanced medical-surgical nursing, maternity, pediatrics and community health nursing. All courses take place on campus during daytime hours.
