Established in 1956, Bradley University’s Department of Nursing offers an undergraduate program, an accelerated program, and a graduate program of study.
In the undergraduate program, students develop the essential capabilities for beginning practice as a professional nurse. The learning opportunities are in a variety of settings. Completion of the undergraduate program leads to a bachelor of science in nursing and eligibility to write the NCLEX-RN licensing examination to become a registered nurse. The undergraduate program is available to undergraduate students, registered nurses who may currently hold a diploma or associate degree, and licensed practical nurses.
The Accelerated Program of study is designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in another discipline, but would like to pursue a career in nursing. This 15-month program offers intensive preparation in the essential capabilities necessary for beginning practice as a professional nurse. Completion of the accelerated program leads to a bachelor of science in nursing and eligibility to write the NCLEX-RN licensing examination to become a registered nurse.
The Graduate Program is designed for professional nurses to explore advanced nursing practice opportunities. Completion of the graduate program of study leads to a master of science in nursing with a specialty in nursing administration, nursing education or an MSN-General. Traditional programs of study are available as well as innovative opportunities that include BSN-MSN experiences and RN-MSN experiences.
