Students who wish to receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree can receive SDSU's high-quality nursing education in Sioux Falls.

Students take coursework and participate in lecture, on-campus labs, and clinical rotations in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities.
In Sioux Falls, pre-nursing students can apply to the Professional Nursing Major in the fall, once all pre-requisite courses are completed or in progress. The program begins each January and is completed in five consecutive semesters, which includes two summers. Students graduate in August of the following year, i.e., January 2018 through August 2019.
Our students in Sioux Falls can opt to complete pre-requisite courses at the Community College of Sioux Falls or in Brookings on the main campus. Detailed pre-requisite information can be found on the Standard Option Curriculum Plan.
Before applying to the Professional Nursing Major, keep in mind that students must:
- complete the pre-requisite courses listed the curriculum plan, and
- meet the technical standards and eligibility requirements.
Students must apply for spring admission by September 25. Our College of Nursing FAQ and College of Nursing Application Checklist further explain the process. Please contact an Academic Advisor before applying or registering for classes to ensure courses are completed in the appropriate sequence.
Once you are ready to apply to the nursing major, fill out the nursing application, available on our College of Nursing Application Page prior to the application deadline, and send it or bring it in to the College of Nursing office at 2300 N. Career Avenue (Suite 260) in Sioux Falls. If you are planning to transfer into the nursing major from another nursing program, you must send a letter to the College of Nursing stating why you wish to transfer and include three letters of recommendation (one from the dean or director of your former nursing program and two from faculty members).
