Three-Year BSN


Interested in the Three Year BSN program?

Are you interested in a career where you can make a difference in someone's life?  If so, you may be interested in exploring a career in nursing. The Baccalaureate Program in Nursing (BSN) is offered at Kent State University-Geauga. All courses to complete the degree are offered at the Geauga Campus in Burton. After completing a year of prerequisites, applicants apply for admission to the nursing program. Once admitted to the program, students attend classes all year long. This allows the students to complete a four year college degree in three calendar years.

Students who successfully complete the BSN program will be eligible to take the NCLEX exam to earn their licensure to become a Registered Nurse (RN).
