BSN Curriculum


The BSN Completion Program curriculum is designed as a completion program for currently-licensed registered nurses. All applicants are required to have completed either an accredited associate degree program or diploma program prior to being admitted to UMW’s BSN Completion Program. All entering students must hold a current, unencumbered registered nurse (RN) license.

Graduates of the UMW program will earn a BSN at the completion of coursework. As is the case for other UMW undergraduate programs, 120 credits will be required for the degree (all of the 10 BSN courses must be taken at UMW). The BSN Completion Program will teach concepts related to clinical reasoning/critical thinking, cultural sensitivity, evidence–based practice, genetics and genomics, informatics, interprofessional collaboration, lifelong learning, patient-centered care, patient safety, professionalism, quality improvement, and practice across the lifespan. Upon completion of the BSN degree, nurses will be able to assume the roles of provider, designer, manager, and coordinator of care in our increasingly complex healthcare system.
