Second Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing

(BSN 2nd bacclaureate program not available at this time.)

For students who hold a baccalaureate degree from Trinity or any other appropriately accredited institution of higher learning, Trinity offers the opportunity to earn a second baccalaureate degree in nursing. The admission process for Trinity’s pre-licensure BSN program is a two-step process. First students must submit an application to Trinity. Upon admission to Trinity, second baccalaureate degree students enter the School of Nursing and Health Professions as nursing candidates. They will then complete the nursing pre-requisite courses listed below. Once students are in their final semester of pre-requisites, they submit an application for formal acceptance into the Nursing Program.

Pre-requisite courses for Second Baccalaureate Degree Nursing Candidates:

  • Anatomy and Physiology I with lab
  • Anatomy and Physiology II with lab
  • Microbiology with lab
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics (college level)
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Ethics (Bioethics preferred)
  • Statistics
  • Nutrition
  • Pathophysiology

Note: Trinity honors students’ first baccalaureate degree as having met the core curriculum (general education) requirements. However, nursing candidates will need to complete the nursing pre-requisite courses listed above to be considered for formal acceptance into the Nursing Program.

For current Trinity students who want more information about the application process for formal acceptance into the Nursing Program, please visit the Nursing Program’s Admission page.
