Albany State University proudly offers two baccalaureate nursing programs:
- The Generic BSN Program is designed for students desiring a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and, as such, is an ideal program for high school, transfer, and change-of-major students.
- The Generic BSN’s “Old Format” is applicable to students who were accepted to the University prior to the Fall 2018 semester under the old curriculum pattern and/or those who wish to apply to the program beginning in either the Fall 2018 or Fall 2019 semester under the old admission criteria.
- o Students who are accepted to the University as new freshmen for the Fall 2018 semester and beyond will adhere to the Generic BSN’s “2+2 Format,” in which the first 2 years at the University will be spent completing the Core curriculum while the last 2 years are spent exclusively in nursing courses. Consequently, this format will first begin accepting students into the nursing-course portion of the curriculum pattern in the Fall 2020 semester.
- The Accelerated (or “Second Degree”) BSN Program is designed for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree from our or another institution and have graduated with at least a 3.0 Cumulative GPA but who also desire to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing, albeit at a faster pace than the generic track.
