BSN Program Overview

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.
    • Students accepted to the University as new freshmen for the Fall 2018 semester (and beyond), as well as students who are applying to the Fall 2019 nursing program will be under 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.
    • The Generic BSN’s “Old Format” was discontinued following its final acceptance cohort in the Fall 2018 semester and is currently being taught out. Thus, this program format is no longer accepting students and is only applicable to students who were accepted into the nursing program during or prior to the Fall 2018 semester.
  • The Accelerated (or “Second Degree”) BSN Program is designed for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree in an area other than nursing 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.
