BS in Nursing

Minot State University is required to notify students whether or not our program meets the licensure requirements of each state.

Licensing requirements can change, so it’s always good to check and double check with state/territorial licensing bodies about specific requirements. The university attempts to provide the most up-to-date information, but the student is ultimately responsible for investigating and knowing the licensing requirements for jurisdictions other than North Dakota.

The following information does not apply to the BSN Completion (RN to BSN) program. The BSN Completion program admits individuals who have a current unencumbered registered nurse license in their state of residence. A U.S. Nursing License is required, therefore students with a nursing license from another country are not eligible.
