School of Nursing – Undergraduate

Change a degree-major of an existing program
BS in Nursing - Nursing Major 

Summary of the Changes:

When we changed the undergraduate BSN curriculum last year, log # 201605-18, we made some course changes and we inadvertently caused NUR 3825 Socialization to Professional Nursing (2 credits) in the RN-BSN curriculum to be changed to the new BSN course, NUR 3825 Concepts of Professional Nursing (3 credits).
We would like to replace the course NUR 3825 as NUR 3XXX Socialization to Professional Nursing (2 credits) for the RN-BSN concentration only. It is 2 credit hours and is still part of the RN-BSN program of study.
Therefore, NUR 3825 Concepts of Professional Nursing will be in the Accelerated Prelicensure nursing program and NUR 3XXX Socialization to Professional Nursing will be in the RN-BSN program.
