BSN – Requirements for Admission

Message from the Undergraduate Coordinator

Brenau University has several ways to earn your BSN degree. You can enroll in our full-time option through our Women’s College. This track takes five semesters or two years to complete once you are admitted to nursing. Classes for this track are offered on Mondays and Fridays during the day with clinical rotations every Tuesday and Wednesday. You might also be interested in the part-time option through a nursing degree that can be completed with classes offered evenings and weekends. This track is an excellent way for people who need to work full-time, but want to become nurses. Classes for this program are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with clinical rotations every other weekend. Either option will prepare you to sit for the registered nurse licensure examination following graduation.
