BS in Nursing (BSN)
MSUM Nursing faculty are doctorally prepared, specialty credentialed, and experienced nurse educators. They are accessible and accommodating and will work with you to ensure you receive the best education possible to advance your nursing practice.
MSUM’s BS in Nursing is designed as an 8-semester program. After completing prerequisite courses and upon acceptance into the nursing program nursing students will progress year round (Fall, Spring and Summer).
For more than 40 years, MSUM has been educating future nurses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. MSUM is recognized as one of the most affordable, high-quality, and long-standing programs in the country, and often receives accolades as a best nursing program by Nursing Degrees.
Fargo-Moorhead is an epicenter of high-quality, integrated health systems that serve the region with outstanding patient care. MSUM enjoys excellent, long-term relationships with all of our community partners.
A study abroad experience will elevate your personal and professional growth by experiencing different populations, environments and health systems, which is not something that can be learned from a book or a class.
MSUM’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program integrates holistic nursing principles throughout the entire nursing curriculum. Holistic nurses nurture wholeness, peace and healing by valuing each person’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental strengths and challenges, and honoring each person’s values, health beliefs and health experience (American Holistic Nurses Association [AHNA], 2019). MSUM will seek endorsement from the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation (AHNCC).
