The Lincoln University of Missouri (LU) School of Nursing is now accepting applications for the Spring 2024 Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. Aspiring nurses wanting to embark on a rewarding journey in healthcare are encouraged to seize this opportunity. The application deadline set for September 27, 2023, at 5 p.m.

LU’s BSN program equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for a successful nursing career. Enrollment is limited to 30 students each semester, reflecting the program's commitment to maintaining a personalized and focused learning experience. Graduates learn to excel in various healthcare settings, with a strong focus on excellence, leadership and community engagement in nursing.

Offering a solid foundation for nursing practice, LU’s dedicated nursing faculty is committed to providing students with the essential skills and knowledge for success. In a time when the demand for highly skilled nurses is greater than ever, LU’s BSN cohort program is taking proactive steps to address the nursing shortage by preparing the next generation of dedicated healthcare professionals.

LU’s BSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). It holds full approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing, ensuring high-quality education. Upon completing our BSN program, graduates will meet the program's objectives, aligning with the Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education for Professional Practice (AACN, 2008). These objectives encompass a range of skills and competencies needed to excel in diverse healthcare settings.
