The RN-BSN program admits 50-75 students each semester. This number includes DSU ADN graduates who choose to continue with their education. Depending on our resources, we will accommodate as many outside applicants as possible who meet our qualifications.

How do I apply to take my NCLEX Licensing Exam?
In order to be licensed as a Registered Nurse in the State of Utah, the application must be in conformity with the Utah Nurse Practice Act. Applicants who have been convicted of a felony, treated for mental illness, or substance abuse should discuss their eligibility status for licensure with the Utah State Board of Nursing. Dixie State University will require all accepted applicants to complete a Criminal Background Check, a sexual offender status check, and a drug screening before acceptance into the nursing programs.
Acceptance and completion of the nursing program does not assure eligibility to take the RN Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®). The Utah State Board of Nursing makes the final decision as to whether a license will be issued to practice nursing in the State of Utah.
