Nursing Course Descriptions

Professional + Continuing Studies Common Curriculum

Admission Requirements

To be admitted into the nursing program, a student must be a registered nurse with a current license to practice in the United States. The student must complete the regular university admissions process and may complete an online application through the Office of Professional and Continuing Studies. A student who does not complete the admissions process prior to registration can enroll as a transient student for one semester by presenting the Registered Nurse license at registration.

Program Requirements

A minimum of 121 semester credit hours is required for the Bachelor of Science in nursing (B.S.N.) degree. No lower division nursing courses are taught at Loyola. Credit for lower division nursing (i.e., adult health, parent-child health, mental health) is awarded by validation of transfer credit for associate degree graduates or validation of advanced placement credit for diploma nursing school graduates. The last 30 credits hours must be completed from the Loyola University New Orleans curriculum.
