Undergraduate Nursing

Brenau University offers several ways to earn a BSN degree.

Full-time: Enroll full-time through the Women’s College. This track takes five semesters or two years to complete once admitted to nursing. Classes for this track are offered on Mondays and Fridays during the day with clinical rotations every Tuesday and Wednesday.

Evening and Weekend:  This track is an excellent way for people who  work full-time, but want to become nurses. Classes are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with clinical rotations every other weekend. Either option prepares you to sit for the registered nurse licensure examination following graduation.
