Thank you for your interest in Grand Canyon University's Bachelor of Science in Nursing Pre-licensure (BSN) program. The BSN program is an eight semester program. Students will complete the prerequisite coursework during their first four semesters and will then apply for acceptance to complete the final four semester upper division nursing core.
Students may complete the nursing core curriculum as either traditional or fast track students. Traditional track students will only attend core classes during the fall and spring semesters. Fast track students will be in attendance year-round as summer is treated as a semester. Both programs follow the same curriculum and align to GCU's academic calendar.
Students are accepted into the core nursing program every fall, spring and summer. Upon graduation from the program, students will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX exam.
