Nutrition & Dietetics–Undergraduate


Add a new concentration to an existing program

Bachelor of Science in Nursing – Nursing Major

Concentration: Freshman Admission for BSN


Summary of the changes:

The School of Nursing would like to add a Freshman Admission concentration to the current BSN program. This concentration was encouraged by administration as it provides an opportunity for selected freshman admission. This cohort would take the same nursing courses as the traditional BSN concentration. However beginning nursing courses would be interspersed with the undergraduate requirements, as noted on the program of study. The concentration would consist of 9 semesters instead of the traditional 5 semesters. The credit hours will remain the same. The courses in this concentration would be the same as are currently offered, only the timing of the courses would change.

Nutrition & Dietetics–Undergraduate


 Add a new concentration to an existing program

Bachelor of Science - Nutrition & Dietetics Major

Concentration: Community Nutrition and Food


 Summary of the changes:

The addition of a community nutrition and food concentration affords students an opportunity to major in nutrition and focus on community nutrition and food independent of earning the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist credential, which in turn helps student retention rates, expand employment opportunities, and accreditation standards.
