Bachelor of Science in Nursing


With a Bachelor of Science in Nursing  (BSN) from the University of Kansas School of Nursing, you'll be prepared for success in today's changing health care environment.  

Our Graduates

Our graduates are prepared as baccalaureate generalist nurses - meaning that they are work-ready as they graduate, having had four semesters and 678 hours of clinical and laboratory experiences to form their broad understanding of professional nursing. KU grads are ready to work in hospitals, community health agencies, industrial or long-term care facilities, as geriatric nurses, ICU nurses, traveling nurses or flight nurses. Graduates of the KU School of Nursing BSN program, begun in 1929, go on to become charge nurses and move into other leadership positions in Kansas and across the country. They are well-prepared to seek further education in master's and doctoral programs in nursing. School of Nursing alumni are hired all over the country and closer to home. The KU nursing education provides a jumping off place for a productive, fulfilling nursing career.


The BSN program requires a total of 120 credit hours, including 58 in liberal arts and sciences prerequisite courses.
