Completion of the BSN program requires a minimum grade of C in all upper level nursing courses and general education courses. Students who do not successfully complete NURS 3310 may not enroll in additional upper level nursing courses until a passing grade in NURS 3310 is earned. A minimum UALR cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 on all work attempted at the university must be maintained.
The program must be completed in three years from the date of initial enrollment in NURS 3310.
Students entering into the BSN Completion Program will have the option of selecting a 12 month or 18 month curriculum plan option. The department accepts students for fall, spring and summer terms. Both tracks require coursework to be completed in the summer. Students in the 12 month option will take between 11-14 credit hours per semester. The students in the 18 month optionÂ typically complete 4-7 credit hours per semester. Please note these do not include any remaining general education courses.
