The Veteran to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (VBSN) admissions pathway is available to students who are United States veterans and/or reservists.  The VBSN admissions pathway allows for a thorough review of applicable academic credit and military training and experience.

The VBSN admissions pathway may provide opportunities for students to take a credit by examination for Blocks 3.0 (Fundamentals of Nursing) and/or 4.0 (Nursing Pharmacology). Students who wish to be considered for eligibility for a credit by examination for nursing Blocks 3.0 and/or 4.0 must have a United States military healthcare specialist rating or comparable role within the past five years (applicants must apply within 5 years of separation from the military to be considered).  The last date of service as a United States military healthcare specialist or comparable occupation will be used to determine eligibility.
