A Solid FoundationThe bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) gives students a solid foundation for beginning a career as a registered nurse. Currently enrolling approximately 500 students, his program is designed for students who wish to pursue the BSN as their first bachelor's degree
After enrolling in Emory College or Oxford College, students complete their first two years of general education requirements. Students may apply and be admitted to the nursing program while their prerequisites are in progress.
