Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The deadline for submitting applications for Fall 2013 admission to the Schreiner University BSN Program has been extended to May 1, 2013 at 5 pm.
The United States is the midst of a critical nursing shortage that is expected to intensify as baby boomers age and the need for health care grows. Over the past decade, both in Texas and nationally, there has been an escalating demand for RNs that exceeds the current RN-supply—and that nation-wide shortage is expected to increase to approximately 260,000 RNs by 2025. The new four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program at Schreiner University will allow the Hill Country to grow a local supply of quality RNs to help meet such rising healthcare demand in and around our own community. Prior to admission in the BSN program, a number of pre-requisite courses are required. The BSN program at Schreiner University is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. We are a member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).
Schreiner University is currently in the process of seeking accreditation with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). In accordance with their standards, we are providing an opportunity for the program's identified communities of interest (e.g. students, alumni, faculty, employers, etc.) to provide written input into the deliberations of the evaluation team.
Written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE until January 26, 2013.
Comments should be mailed to:
