Pre-Licensure BSN

Nursing is one of the most exciting careers in the workforce. UMKC can help students get started in their freshman year with the pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN-PL). Students apply to the SoNHS and begin pre-nursing courses in their freshman year. The BSN-PL includes three years of clinical course work.

You will receive hands-on clinical experiences in the first semester of your sophomore year. Expect clinical opportunities with diverse patients. Those experiences will be at urban and suburban settings within hospitals that are privately-owned, publicly-owned and teaching institutions. Instructors provide a safe learning environment complete with high-fidelity simulators throughout the program so students can learn while working directly with patients. The curriculum emphasizes critical qualities necessary for leadership roles including complex-problem solving and management skills. The BSN-PL track requires an internship and 128 credit hours for graduation. It has full approval by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
