  • Maximum Percent of Applicants Admitted – No more than 60 percent of applicants are admitted.

“NSU is proud to be ranked among the best R.N. to B.S.N. nursing programs in the nation,” said Marcella M. Rutherford, Ph.D., M.B.A., M.S.N., dean, NSU’s College of Nursing. “Through this degree program, we offer busy, working nurses an opportunity to advance their careers with the support of small class sizes and experienced faculty members in as little as four semesters.”
