Concurrent ADN-BSN Track
Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing
The concurrent Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN)/ Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (BSN) is designed for motivated students currently enrolled in an accredited ADN program in the state of Texas as an alternative to the generic BSN. Students complete 30 hours of BSN level coursework at the same time they are enrolled in ADN courses. For the student seeking to graduate with honors, an additional 15 SCH must be taken in order to meet the University requirement of completing 45 SCH at UT Tyler to graduate with honors (see graduation with honors requirements).
To be considered for the concurrent enrollment track, applicants must (1) be accepted by an ADN program that has a concurrent degree agreement with UT Tyler; (2) meet requirements and be accepted for admission at UT Tyler; and (3) have completed all Core Curriculum and BSN prerequisite courses. Application is made at the same time a student is accepted into a ADN partner program.
The student must provide her/his own transportation to health care agencies. Driving distances will vary; clinical assignments will be based on availability of learning experiences.
Courses taken at UT Tyler are offered primarily online to accommodate the class schedules of the ADN program. Individual plans vary depending on the student’s ADN program and will be determined jointly by advisors at the ADN program and UT Tyler SON advising office.
