The pre-licensure BSN concentration is a 5-semester program for those individuals without a prior degree who wish to become a professional nurse following a traditional undergraduate pathway. UAH students and transfer students are eligible for admission to this upper-division concentration. Graduates earn a BSN and are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam to become registered nurses.

We welcome your questions about this pathway to becoming a registered nurse. We believe starting as a freshman at UAH gives you high-quality preparation for nursing. Our advisors are ready to answer your questions and connect you with current students or faculty.

  • UAH students who declare nursing as freshmen and have the required GPA and ACT scores are eligible for the Dean's Scholar Program and the Honors College.
  • UAH students who have completed 30 or more hours at UAH and meet admission requirements will be given priority consideration for admission into the pre-licensure BSN concentration.

Come and share your college experience with us. You belong in blue scrubs!
