The Joint Undergraduate and Master's Program (JUMP) is an excellent opportunity to obtain both an undergraduate and a graduate degree in a shortened time frame at reduced cost. Students planning to obtain a master's degree (MSN) can get a “JUMP” start while completing their bachelor's degree (BSN). The JUMP Program is a great value because students take graduate-level courses as an undergraduate (and earn graduate-level credit) but pay undergraduate rates. Additionally, there is no entrance exam, no application fee, and some BSN hours are counted twice towards MSN hours. Students are also allowed to use merit tuition scholarships in this program.

The College of Nursing offers 3 RN-BSN to MSN JUMP tracks: Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Education, and Nursing Administration. Sample plans of full-time study for each track are found below.

For more information, check out the UAH JUMP website.
