“Nursing integrates the art and science of caring and focuses on the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and human functioning; prevention of illness and injury; facilitation of healing; and alleviation of suffering through compassionate presence. Nursing is the diagnosis and treatment of human responses and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations in recognition of the connection of all humanity.” (American Nurses Association, 2021, p. 1).

The Lindenwood University Nursing program is committed to developing academic opportunities for those interested in becoming a bachelor level educated registered nurse (RN). To this regard, we have two programs of study:

  • Pre-licensure/traditional BSN RN program track (in development) - designed to prepare graduates for entry into the profession of nursing.
  • Post-licensure/degree completion BSN program track - designed for currently licensed RN (diploma or associates degree) to complete their BSN degree.

Traditional Track

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) - In Development

Our traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) prepares undergraduate students to successfully pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) and begin a rewarding nursing career. The traditional BSN option, once approved by the board of nursing, will be a full-time on-campus program. The traditional BSN track is designed for students who have completed core general education and nursing prerequisite courses and would apply to the nursing major beginning their junior year to become a registered nurse (RN).


Our undergraduate RN to BSN Program leads to the bachelor’s degree in nursing for the professional registered nurse without repetition of pre-licensure nursing and clinical courses. Curriculum is designed to be completed 100% online and centered around the working nurse. The program can be enrolled in either a full-time or part-time basis and requires a minimum of 32 credits at Lindenwood University. Credit for prior RN license is awarded upon entry to the program. This program is specifically designed for working registered nurses who have completed a diploma or associate degree in nursing and obtained a RN licensure.
