What to Expect
Once you’re accepted to both programs, how you choose to structure your course load is up to you: You may choose to take your required courses for each program concurrently or complete one program before starting another.
No matter what you choose, you’ll build your core understanding of each area with foundational classes in each area: 34 to 38 credit hours in nursing, allowing you to find a major and a specialization, and 30 in bioethics. Plus, nine credit hours of crossover coursework, including the Clinical Ethics Rotation class, “double counts,” meaning you’ll need to take—and pay for—even fewer hours when you pursue this dual degree.
You’ll have the opportunity to customize your electives to what interests you most, making this a flexible program that can have an immediate impact on your career and your organization.
