Midway University has a long history of educating professional nurses. Continuing with this tradition, in Fall 2019, the University will launch a new 4-year traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.
This pre-licensure 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 accredited nursing programs prepare 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.
How can a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree work for you? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has issued an industry goal to have 80 percent of the nursing workforce hold a BSN by 2020. In Kentucky, current statistics show that only 34 percent of nurses hold a BSN degree. As more and more employers are making this the standard requirement, the job growth looks strong for graduates with a BSN degree. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing jobs are projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Students interested in this program must first apply and be accepted to Midway University and then apply to the nursing program.
If you are a current RN and looking to complete your RN-BSN degree, Midway also offers that program online as part of our Adult Undergraduate program as well as an MSN program with both RN(ADN)-MSN or BSN-MSN options.
