Aspiring undergraduate nursing students enroll as freshmen pre-nursing majors. The BSN program is an upper-division offering that requires Pre-nursing majors to complete the core curriculum courses and the wellness requirements prior to matriculation into the BSN Major. May or August, new junior students enter the 4 semester course of program study (secondary application to the program is required usually in the sophomore year).
Instruction progresses from simple to complex, and the curriculum is sequentially organized using core and process concepts. The core concepts that are central to content development are the person, environment, health, and nursing. Interwoven with the core concepts are those process concepts that nursing uses to maintain and improve the health of persons in their environment.
Connecting the core and process concepts is the overarching desired outcome of quality health care that should be safe, effective, patient/client-centered, timely, efficient, equitable, and evidence-based.
This program requires an additional admissions application beyond the regular Augusta University undergraduate admissions application. This program is an accredited 2+2 program, which means applicants must complete their freshmen and sophomore years (60 semester hours) at an accredited college/university of choice, and the junior and senior years (64 semester hours) on the Augusta University campus after being admitted to the program. Please see the Office of Academic Admissions website for specific admissions information: https://www.augusta.edu/admissions/hs-programs/nursing.php
