36-month nursing program

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The 36-month BSN program is offered at Minnesota School of Business's nursing school. The BSN prepares students for entry-level professional practice, while providing an educational climate that stimulates lifelong learning.

Graduate NCLEX pass rate: 96% in 2012

The BSN program, which is offered through our sister school Minnesota School of Business, includes intensive preparation for the NCLEX-RN exam (National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses).

We are proud of the success of our graduates on attaining licensure and moving into the profession of nursing as baccalaureate prepared nurses. In 2012, 96% of our graduates passed the exam on their first try. Check out Minnesota NCLEX test results by school.

Student Nursing Organizations

In an effort to continually support professional development, our student body is active in two nursing school societies. The BSN nursing program is a charter member of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the nursing honor society, Chi-at-Large Chapter—a global community of nurse leaders.

Chi-at-Large chapter schools are Bethel University, St. Catherine University, The Minnesota Intercollegiate Nursing Consortium (MINC): Gustavus Adolphus College and St. Olaf College, and Globe University/Minnesota School of Business. Students have opportunity to be inducted into STTI Chi-at-Large chapter based on academic achievement and scholarship and service.

The campus Student Nurse Association was created in 2006 to promote scholarship, practice and service.
