There are two main programs and a minor that are offered for undergraduate nursing students. The two main programs are a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and an RN Upward Mobility program. There is a Health Science Minor offered which requires 24 credits across disciplines with a required core of course offerings.
The BSN has standard options for graduating as well as an accelerated program. The Standard Option is a four-year nursing program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The Standard Option can be completed in Brookings, Rapid City and Sioux Falls. The Accelerate Option is for students who have completed a Bachelor's degree in any field and wish to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The program takes 12 months to complete and starts once a year (August) at University Center in Sioux Falls or once a year (January) at Northern State University in Aberdeen.
Another excellent option for nursing undergrad students is the RN to BSN. The online option is available to associate and diploma nursing graduates. Once admitted to SDSU, RN's can begin coursework any semester.
