The Special Entry Option (SEO) allows registered nurses who have earned baccalaureate degrees in areas other than nursing to work toward a master's degree in nursing without completing the nursing baccalaureate. This option will allow greater educational flexibility for registered nurses, minimize duplication of previous learning and provide the opportunity to obtain an advanced degree in nursing.
Note: Students pursuing the SEO will not receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), which may be required by the military and some employers.
The School of Nursing and Health Sciences reserves the right to amend policies, procedures and other program information as necessary. All changes will be communicated promptly.
