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.
The UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies (SONHS) offers the Direct Admit Program for outstanding high school students who intend to enter UMKC as freshmen. Eligible students are offered direct admission into the Pre-Licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) Program as freshmen, allowing them to be pre-admitted to the clinical major.
