Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The South Dakota State University College of Nursing provides a strong academic and clinical background for entry into professional nursing, as well opportunities for registered nurses to further their education by obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.). We offer programs across the state in Rapid City, Aberdeen, Sioux Falls and Brookings. We also offer our RN to B.S.N. option exclusively online.
You can be sure our education is of the highest quality, because our baccalaureate graduates consistently score above the national average on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). We currently boast a 89.6% pass rate for first time test takers in 2022. With a job placement rate of 90%, as reported within three months, SDSU College of Nursing will provide you with the foundation you need for a successful carer in nursing.
The standard program is for students seeking a four-year bachelor's degree. The accelerated program is designed for students who already hold a non-nursing bachelor's degree, and the RN to B.S.N. is for registered nurses who want to pursue their bachelor's degree.
