The BSN program at Union College is a four-year program in nursing. It prepares students to be eligible to take the National Collegiate Licensure Exam for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN) after graduation. Upon successful completion of the exam, graduates are prepared to begin practice as a BSN prepared Registered Nurse.

This four-year program includes two years of pre-nursing courses and two years of courses in the Nursing major. Students enter Union College as pre-nursing majors, and apply to the nursing major, usually in the fall of the sophomore year. All liberal studies and nursing pre-requisite courses must be completed prior to entering into the nursing major.

Completion of the BSN program often leads to professional advancement and serves as a base for other degrees:  Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), and/or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

The Ramsey Center for Health and Natural Science includes state of the art clinical and simulation lab facilities with high tech equipment and supplies.
