The University of Northern Colorado Second Degree Nursing Program is specific to students who are seeking a BS in nursing as a second bachelor’s degree. This program prepares students for the rewards and challenges of professional nursing practice as well as providing a foundation for graduate study in nursing.
Students begin the program each Summer term and will complete the nursing courses in 20 months (five consecutive semesters). This program is offered by the UNC School of Nursing through UNC Extended Campus, with most coursework in Greeley on the UNC campus, some coursework at our Loveland Center at Centerra and clinical experiences in the surrounding area.
Each faculty member in this Nursing program is a Registered Nurse with practice, teaching and research experience. All faculty have advanced degrees in Nursing and many are certified in their specialty area. The UNC School of Nursing is approved by the Colorado State Board of Nursing and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Students graduating from the BSN Program are eligible to sit for the NCLEX RN licensure exam.
