The traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program is offered on
all of the five campus sites: Billings, Bozeman, Great Falls, Kalispell, and Missoula.
The Accelerated BSN option is offered in Bozeman, Great Falls, Kalispell, and Missoula.
Students interested in the traditional BSN program may complete the required prerequisite courses as pre-nursing students at any accredited college or university in Montana or another state. They must be prepared to apply for admission to the nursing major one year before they are ready to begin the junior and senior level nursing courses. Once they have accepted an upper division (junior and senior level) placement for completing the nursing major, they are enrolled in the lower division (sophomore level) nursing courses.
Most students will be enrolled in the sophomore nursing courses on their upper division campus during the fall or spring semester immediately preceding the semester they begin their junior level coursework. Some campuses are limited in the number of sophomore students that can be accommodated.
Graduate-level coursework is offered through distance delivery modalities for both the Master’s of Nursing (MN) and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degrees. Graduate courses are taught using a Web-based delivery platform (BrightSpace D2L) and enhanced using interactive videoconferencing and teleconferencing. Graduate students are required to attend coursework on the Bozeman campus once a year at the beginning of the fall semester and attend their Comprehensive Exam and Project Defense on one of the college’s five sites.
