The Co-enrollment Non-veteran (BCE) and Veterans Co-enrollment (VCE) programs allow students to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree online while concurrently enrolled in an Associates of Applied Science nursing degree (AAS Nursing) program at a partner community college. Nursing classes in the co-enrollment programs are offered online in a seven-week format. 

Active military and veterans also have the option to apply to the Traditional BSN or the Accelerated Second Degree BSN

As a designated military friendly school since 2012, Mason is committed to the military and veteran population. Mason is also a member of the Yellow Ribbon Program, managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

Students take the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) after completing their AAS in nursing while enrolled in Mason’s BSN program. After a student passes the NCLEX and upon successful completion of NURS 336, students are awarded 33 nursing transfer credits toward their BSN degree. Students complete Mason’s BSN program the semester following graduation with the AAS degree and after obtaining the RN license. The RN license is required prior to completing the BSN program.
