Kickoff your nursing career at our Columbus campus. Here, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program that is accredited* by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The three-year BSN program has no waiting lists or prerequisites. This gives Chamberlain BSN students the opportunity to complete their degree programs faster than traditional four-year programs which have summers off. In the end, our graduates can enter the workforce sooner, and begin making a real difference in people’s lives.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program

Our BSN program is designed for entry-level students looking to begin their career as a nurse. Chamberlain students begin nursing courses as early as the end of their first year of classes. This is because they are not required to complete general education coursework before being eligible to apply to the nursing degree curriculum.

The BSN degree program combines general education and nursing courses into an education that provides the experience and skills needed for a lifetime of personal and professional growth.

Specifically, earning your BSN degree consists of a minimum of 129 total credit hours made up of 60 credit hours in liberal arts and sciences and 69 credit hours of nursing courses.

What Students Can Expect

Students are taught by seasoned faculty members, including currently practicing nurses and professional educators who stay up-to-date on healthcare practices, principles and technology.

Chamberlain students hone their nursing skills in safe, simulated learning environments. They go hands-on while under observation by faculty in realistic healthcare settings. This extensive training lets them become competent and confident nursing professionals.

Additionally, by fulfilling clinical requirements, students receive meaningful, real-world training in actual healthcare delivery environments. This experience takes place under the supervision of a professional nurse who acts as the student’s preceptor.

Outside of the classroom, students have supplementary resources available to help them complete their degree program and succeed as a professional nurse, including:

  • Center for Academic Success – Assisting students in achieving academic success with tutoring, assessment, teaching and other resources.
  • Student Academic Success (SAS) Plan – Measurement and tracking of student activity for early identification of academic concerns and timely response.
  • Career Services – Providing career planning, interview and resume support and employment opportunities.
  • Early Alert – Identifying students who are experiencing academic performance issues early to proactively address issues and help increase student success.
  • ASPIRE – A no-cost, confidential personal-support program for students and their families to address issues in their daily life or academic performance.
