Students who dually enroll full-time in the Lakeland and Ursuline Breen School of Nursing programs can complete an associate degree in nursing (RN) in five semesters and then complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) in as few as two additional semesters post-licensure. Students will attend classes throughout the academic year including online courses during the summer semester.
New first-time Lakeland students who are college ready can start immediately with no waiting. Students are eligible to take the state nursing exam upon earning the associate degree. Students can seek employment once they are licensed as a registered nurse.
