Mason’s Traditional BSN is a four-year, full-time, pre-licensure pathway for applicants who do not hold a prior Bachelor’s degree. The program provides students an opportunity to experience nursing in a variety of clinical settings throughout the National Capitol area. Students complete Mason Core and nursing prerequisites, with nursing courses introduced in their freshman year. 

Clinical courses extend across the sophomore, junior, and senior year of the BSN program. The BSN Clinical Hours per Course details how each course is planned with lecture hours, skill lab hours, simulation hours, and direct patient care hours.

The program admits once a year in Fall and spaces are limited. We recommend that all applicants attend an Information Session to learn more about important application guidelines and requirements. Additional information about Traditional BSN can also be found in the university catalog

* The 2nd-gate 2-year BSN pathway no longer accepts applications.
