Become a Registered Nurse

The DSU Pre-Licensure BSN Program is a full-time program for students who want to become a registered nurse. Nursing school requires a substantial time commitment to fulfill the intensive requirements of the program in the classroom, nursing arts laboratory, and clinical settings.

Application for Spring 2019 ADMISSION is Now Closed


MINIMUM Recommended Score on each section is 70%

Students who score below 70% in any section of the HESI A2 exam should remediate low-scoring sections and retest before applying to the Pre-Licensure BSN Program.

Retake HESI to Improve Scores

Students may now retake the HESI exam to improve their scores. There is no limit on testing attempts for the Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 application cycles. We highly recommend testing remediation prior to retaking the exam.

Program Cost

The DSU Pre-Licensure BSN Program follows the tuition and fees outlined by Dixie State University. Upper Division nursing courses will be the base price of either resident or non-resident tuition plus a $75 per credit tuition differential due to the high costs of healthcare related equipment and supplies. See the overall program cost breakdown here.
