- A B.S. in nursing degree at UVU prepares students to practice across all sorts of health care settings. A B.S. in nursing provides the best opportunity for advancement in the nursing field. A BSN is also needed for entrance into most graduate nursing programs including nurse practitioner, certified nurse anesthetist, nursing educator, or even nurse researcher. Students enthusiastic about the BSN would first have to complete the ASN training program. Acceptance into the ASN training program is by a competitive, point-based application process.
- After completing the four semesters of the ASN training program, students would be qualified to graduate with an Associate of Science in Nursing-ASN as well as apply to take the NCLEX-RN examination.
- Graduates of the ASN training program would be eligible to remain in the training program, and also seamlessly transition to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing portion of the training program. The BSN at UVU is a complete training program, and also students who are not entering directly from the UVU ASN training program must be licensed RNs before admission.
