Degrees • Pre-licensure BSN: • In order to be an RN, many require this degree. This is the general major. • Accelerated BSN: • For students that already have a bachelor’s degree in another field but wish to get one in nursing. • RN-BSN: • For RNs that wish to get a BSN. • Bachelor of Health Sciences: • Health and wellness major.
UMKC’S BSN • UMKC’s four-year BSN program graduates are required to complete 1200 clinical hours, whereas many other schools require only 900 or less clinical contact hours. This means when you graduate from UMKC with your BSN, you will have at least an additional 300 hands-on clinical hours. Area hospitals often say that UMKC graduates are better prepared and are better nurses because of this additional clinical experience and because of the core clinical courses that are taught. UMKC teaches all facets of nursing as part of the core curriculum. At UMKC, all clinicals are required courses, rather than some being electives only.
Prerequisites High school graduates admitted into the nursing major should have completed a college preparatory curriculum that includes: • 4 units of English with two units emphasizing composition • 4 units of mathematics (at least through algebra II) • 3 units of social studies • 3 units of science with one being a laboratory course • 1 unit of fine arts • 2 units of foreign language.
