The Mississippi College School of Nursing was established in 1969, and graduated its first class in 1973. It offers a program of study leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. This is the basic professional degree for nurses and is the foundation for graduate nursing education. The nursing curriculum is designed to enable the student to secure a broad foundation in general education with content in professional nursing education. The School offers two tracks for completion of the baccalaureate degree: the generic track for traditional students and an online RN-to-BSN track for registered nurse students.
The School of Nursing is in the midst of curriculum reorganization to respond to the dynamic changes in health care and the needs of nurses who will prepared to work well into the middle of the century. This reorganization will become effective with nursing course changes for students admitted into the School of Nursing in Fall 2014. Further information about coursees may be obtained from the School of Nursing by calling 601-925-3278.
