The mission of the William Penn University BSN program is to prepare BSN graduates with enhanced leadership skills that are essential to nursing practice in a diverse and ever-changing healthcare environment. Educational preparation is grounded in the nursing program’s outcomes and William Penn’s principles and goals.
The 4-Year Pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed to complete the liberal arts and science courses (concentration in math & science) prior to entrance into the nursing courses. Nursing courses will be offered in the last two years of the program.
Acceptance into the program can be through Regular Admission or Early Admission.
The regular admission process is to complete steps for admission at William Penn University. Select the 4-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing major. Acceptance requirements for William Penn University will be applied. The student will be assigned an advisor in the nursing division to assure they are on track to complete all required courses prior to starting the final two years of the BSN program.
In order to be accepted into the final two years of the BSN program, the student must complete the following requirements:
The TEAS test can be taken up to five times, with remediation on each attempt.
A cumulative GPA of 2.75 must be maintained. A grade of C (2.0) or above must be attained in each nursing course.
The early admission process is a formal understanding between the high school student and William Penn University in which a student may be granted admission to William Penn University and provisional admission into the BSN program. Early admission students must also meet the requirements for final admission to nursing (acceptance into the last two years of the program).
