- The BSN Degree Training program at NMSU offers four-degree options. To accommodate either the beginning nursing pupil with the traditional BSN degree, the returning registered nurse (RN) who wants to complete a BSN, the second degree accelerated Roadrunner BSN option as well as the second-degree seeking Pathways BSN option for individuals who already have a Bachelor’s degree in a different field.
- These two options are created for students with an undergraduate degree in a different discipline who want to pursue a Baccalaureate degree in Nursing.

Successful graduates of the BSN training program option would be qualified to take the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Examination (NCLEX) for licensure as a registered nurse. All prerequisite and also requisite course work taken at different institutions will be evaluated for admittance to the second Degree alternate route BSN training program option.
