Prelicensure Track Overview

Make a Difference in Health Care

Nurses are in demand. Through the College of Nursing's 16-month Prelicensure Track, students will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and the skills to make a positive impact in health care.


The College of Nursing offers a 16-month track to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. This track begins each fall and spring semester and runs four consecutive semesters.

Concepts of evidence-based practice, leadership, professionalism, health, health promotion, and quality and safety are integrated throughout the curriculum and provides learning experiences in:

  • Maternal and infant care
  • Acute and chronic care across the lifespan
  • Care transitions
  • Population, community, and global health
  • Healthcare disparities and social determinants of care
  • Health policy and advocacy

Students participate in supervised clinical learning experiences in a variety of settings for approximately 12 to 24 hours per week.

“I have a big heart for the unfortunate, the sick, the hurt, and the vulnerable. Science combined with empathy is my natural calling, which led me to nursing. The college's faculty and staff are definitely the best in the state of Utah—as a first generation American and student, guidance and support are crucial for my success.”

-Nestor Chavez, pre-licensure baccalaureate student
