Our Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program prepares graduates for entry-level professional nursing practice in both hospital and community-based settings. We have variations of our traditional program curriculum that help meet the needs of students with various interests, including a pre-med nursing curriculum, ROTC and study abroad opportunities.
Undergraduate students are admitted directly into the Creighton University School of Nursing their freshman year and need not reapply once accepted.
