The College of Nursing at the University of Missouri–St. Louis will offer a part-time option in its pre-licensure Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree program beginning this spring. This option involves the same coursework as the college’s other two pre-licensure options within the BSN program – full-time traditional and full-time accelerated. The minimum admission criteria are the same as the traditional program, but the part-time option will allow students to complete their classes, labs and clinicals in the evenings and weekends.
“This will provide an important scheduling option for students,” said Juliann Sebastian, dean of the College of Nursing at UMSL. “Many individuals interested in a career in nursing tell us that full-time study is difficult or impossible for them due to the many obligations people are managing today. As nurses, we honor and support healthy life balance, so adding a part-time option that maintains our high standards of rigor and excellence is very appropriate.”
UMSL is the only public university in the St. Louis area to offer a part-time evening/weekend BSN degree option.
