Concurrent Enrollment Program
In keeping with changes in health care delivery and technological advances available in education, the faculty of the School of Nursing has developed the innovative Concurrent Enrollment program. The Concurrent Enrollment program presents an opportunity for individuals to obtain a BSN in a timely manner while remaining in their local community. This program is for students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in another discipline and desire to change careers, enter professional nursing and obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN).
The Concurrent Enrollment nursing student will complete all ODU BSN nursing courses online while concurrently enrolled in their AAS nursing courses at a partner institution. Advisors work with students to develop an individual plan of study to fulfill the requirements. The Concurrent Enrollment program contributes to the BSN prepared workforce as well as prepares RNs for graduate programs by creating a seamless progression from the AAS to the BSN.
Following graduation from the AAS program and successful completion of the NCLEX RN licensure exam, the student will be awarded 33 nursing transfer credits toward completion of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. The program begins in the fall or spring semester.
