Traditional Nursing Programs (Pre-licensure/Transfer)


Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The core of Detroit Mercy's nursing program is our undergraduate nursing curriculum. This program, strongly focused on nursing in the community, is founded on the sciences and the liberal arts, and strives to foster critical thinking.

Its aim is to educate nurses competent to provide contemporary clinical care, make critical decisions within an ethical framework, communicate effectively, exercise leadership/management skills, and coordinate health promotion, risk reduction, and illness or disease management strategies for clients.

The McAuley School also maintains numerous partnerships with community and health care agencies to provide a variety of clinical experiences for students. The BSN program is full-time only. For more information, please call 313-993-1505.

As a transfer student, it is likely that you will have taken some of the coursework in the list below. If you are an internal transfer (from another major) you will need to speak to an advisor to establish a plan for the courses you will take.

External transfers (from other colleges): The transfer team will evaluate your file upon acceptance and send you an evaluation of coursework in the mail within 2 weeks of acceptance. You will then speak to an advisor to establish a plan for the courses you will take.
