Undergraduate (BSN):

As a TSU nursing student, you will be challenged to strive for excellence and professionalism whether in the classroom, laboratory, clinical agency or community setting. Upon successful completion of the BSN curriculum, and degree conferred by the university, graduates are eligible to apply for licensure as a registered nurse and to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®). Upon meeting licensure requirements and passing the NCLEX-RN®, the Tarleton BSN graduate will become a BSN RN.

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program offers options for a major in Nursing Administration or Nursing Education. The nursing administration major will prepare graduates to assume leadership roles for unit, department, service line, or the system-level of health care organizations.
