Bachelor of Science in Nursing
As a first-year student, you’ll find yourself launching head-first into a rigorous curriculum. With the support of an experienced nursing faculty adviser, you’ll receive academic and professional guidance throughout your nursing education at Shenandoah. If you're interested in a different kind of challenge to supplement your nursing education, you can also apply to Shenandoah's Honors Program. You will also have direct access to a full range of student-life activities on and off campus. After you’ve completed your studies, you’ll sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), prepared with the skills and knowledge to apply for entry-level professional nurse positions.

Shenandoah’s Nursing program is special because it has direct admittance. Many schools do not admit students into their nursing programs until the junior year, but at Shenandoah you know you are in the nursing program upon admittance to the university. That also means that you can start taking nursing classes earlier than other programs elsewhere. Student’s first nursing course will be in your sophomore year. Additionally, nursing students are assigned a nursing faculty advisor upon entry to the university.
