Program Overview

Nursing at Lincoln University offers two tracks for those pursuing careers in the nursing profession through undergraduate study. These are the Pre-Licensure BSN and the part-time RN to BSN program. The pre-licensure BSN program at Lincoln University is designed for high school graduates, change of major students, and transferring students. Currently, the BSN program is a full-time day program that can be completed in less than 2 years following the completion of the pre-nursing course requirements. Nursing courses start at the junior level with a progressive nursing curriculum that will allow students to build a solid foundation for nursing practice. Graduates of the pre-licensure BSN program are eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam. The BSN program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
