Nursing Students with Faculty

Undergraduate Degree Options-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, generic BSN and LVN to BSN 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 BSN program has three entry options:

Generic BSN- Department of Pre Licensure Nursing

LVN to BSN- Department of Post Licensure Nursing

RN to BSN- Department of Post Licensure Nursing



At the end of the program, the baccalaureate-prepared generalist nursing graduate will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate professional standards, attitudes, and core values that are fundamental to the discipline of nursing. 
  2. Engage in continuous self-evaluation and life-long learning to foster professional growth and development, to improve own practice and maintain a current knowledge base.
  3. Function as a knowledge-worker with strong clinical reasoning, clinical judgment, and communication and assessment skills.
  4. Safely practices in complex health care systems incorporating evidence-based nursing interventions to manage client changes while addressing differences, values, preferences and expressed needs. 
  5. Function within scope and standards of nursing practice and organizational policies to promote quality and a safe environment which reduces risk.
  6. Manage health care transitions and/or referrals, communicate and collaborate within inter/intra-professional teams, identify system issues, and develop working skills in delegation, supervision, prioritization, advocacy, and coordination of care.
