The University of Mississippi School of Nursing offers the Traditional BSN program on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses; however, the last class to attend the Traditional BSN program on the Oxford campus is the 2012 class. This program will be offered in Oxford until 2014, when the class that entered the nursing program in 2012 graduates. The Oxford campus will transition from undergraduate to graduate education from 2012 to 2014.
