Traditional BSN

The traditional bachelor of science in nursing degree (BSN) program consists of five (5) semesters of major courses after you have completed university core requirements. Students can become a BSN major by enrolling at ETSU as a pre-nursing major, changing majors, or transferring to ETSU from another college or university.

    ( NOTE: Please note that the method for receiving applications to Traditional, LPN-BSN and Accelerated programs has changed. We have moved to a Centralized Application Service that is available nationally to nursing programs and which is sponsored by our accrediting agency. The cost to apply is $45. Please read the Nursing CAS Application Instructions very carefully BEFORE you click the link to apply to our program.)

To receive full consideration, students must be admitted to East Tennessee State University by the nursing application deadline dates. Since admission to the university can take several weeks, students are encouraged to apply well in advance of the nursing deadlines. Consideration for the nursing major cannot be guaranteed if full admission to the university has not been obtained.
