What is a 2+2 program?
Bachelors of Science of Nursing (BSN) Degree at the Columbia College of Nursing is an upper division, "2 plus 2" program. Students complete their first 60 required general education credits at accredited institutions of higher learning, which are often completed within two years. Upon successful completion, students then can be admitted to the nursing program at the Columbia College of Nursing, where the final 60 nursing credits are completed for the BSN degree. With guaranteed clinical placements and no waiting lists, the majority of students complete the final 60 credits in two years.
Please encourage your son or daughter to contact our Admissions Specialist early when completing prerequisite coursework, to ensure classes meet transfer requirements. Students are encouraged to plan ahead so they can complete their degree within four years and start working as a nurse as soon as possible!
