Difficulty getting into UofU's RN-BSN or MSN program?

  1. Hello all.

    Does anyone know how difficult it is to get into UofU's RN-BSN or Nurse Practitioner program? I'm thinking of moving back to Utah after I finish my AA in nursing. Any tips? Thanks in advance!

    I work with many people that have obtained an MSN and RN-BSN at the U, and it seems as though it isn't too hard to get into. Not near as competetive as it is just getting a BSN there. Good Luck!

    I know this post is two years old, but I'll just mention checking out the BSN programs at other schools, such as Weber State University, Westminster College and Utah Valley University.

    U of U's BSN program is fine, but be aware that they have quite a few additional pre-reqs that you have to take in order to be able to apply, such as Statistics (Math 1040) , Chem 1120, Nutrition Intervention 2320 (not just Foundations of Nutrition), Human Growth and Development 1500, and Clinical Microbiology (3603).

    In short, you've got a good semester and a quarter of pre-reqs to take before you can even apply.
