ACEN SealMidway University’s pre-licensure Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) program combines general education courses with professional nursing theory, complex critical thinking, and clinical practice. Consistent with the mission and goals of the university, our BSN degree program prepares nurses as leaders who can provide health care to individuals, families, groups, and populations of diverse cultures in a variety of settings.

After graduation and successful completion of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), you will be on your way to practicing as a registered nurse in any number of healthcare settings. The BSN degree will also prepare you for graduate education and continued growth of your nursing career should you so choose.

Midway has several nursing programs and formats available which can lead you to your ultimate nursing career goals. The first option is our four year in-seat BSN program. More commonly preferred by our traditional students, the courses take place during the day and allow for students to live on campus and play a sport should they so choose. The same degree is available through a different format which is our RN-BSN program. Students may choose to complete an ADN first (either elsewhere or through Midway) for which the courses are available as day or evening courses. Once complete, ADN students that pass the NCLEX can pursue our online RN-BSN program while already beginning work as an RN. A BSN can be earned through either of the aforementioned programs in the same amount of time, just through different course formats. Speak with an admissions counselor today to see which program is right for you.
