Welcome to the Minot State Department of Nursing

The BSN degree is associated with high quality nursing care, positive client outcomes, and saving lives. Your BSN degree opens the doors to a wide variety of career choices as the nationwide nursing shortage is expected to grow to more than 250,000 registered nurses by 2025.

Energetic and dynamic, the Department of Nursing has pre-nursing students, prelicensure nursing students, and online BSN Completion students enrolled. High-fidelity clinical simulation experiences are incorporated for all nursing students in the Nursing Clinical Simulation Center. Innovative public health nursing experiences allows individuals to remain independent through student nurses’ provision of an Adult Health Maintenance Clinic. Our nursing faculty have a variety of clinical and educational experiences that enhance teaching and learning in the classroom and clinical setting.

Accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. and approved by the ND Board of Nursing, the Department of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN). You will find information and applications for our prelicensure Bachelor of Science In Nursing (BSN) program and the BSN completion program for currently licensed RNs. Additionally, we offer a minor in Health Management Science for non-nursing majors.

The four year plan and sample curriculum is noted in the Professions in Demand brochure for the pre-licensure students and the BSN Completion Program for the Registered Nurse brochure for post-licensure students.
