Bachelor of Science: Nursing

The RN to BSN Program has been developed to meet the needs of registered nurses who want to complete their bachelor’s degree.  The BSN degree requires at least 120 semester hours of course work.  Students must complete 45 semester hours of 300 and 400 level courses for graduation.  In keeping with the College Mission, students are expected to complete one hour of service learning for every hour they are enrolled at Miller College.  Service learning may be performed at any time prior to the completion of the Senior Seminar.  The purpose of this guide is to outline the BSN program’s requirements.   Please be aware that your catalog year and requirements are determined by the first semester in which you are admitted to this program and take classes at Miller College.

Nurse Applicant Program

Students waiting to be admitted to a nursing program at a community college, who have earned 30 semester hours, may be interested in our Nurse Applicant Program. This program allows the student to take General Education courses at Miller College toward their BSN while waiting to be accepted to an Associate Degree Nursing Program. When the student is accepted into the Associate Degree Program, they may step out until completed, then return to Miller College after receiving their RN license. This is a great opportunity to work towards the ultimate goal of BSN completion.
