Early-Entry Program

early-entry.jpgEarly-entry programs at the University of Mississippi School of Nursing allow eligible students to reserve a spot in a competitive program - either the Traditional BSN program, the RN-MSN program or the DNP program - without the stress of competing against hundreds of applicants.

These early-entry routes provide a seamless transition from high school, an associate-degree program or a master's program to higher education.

  • Freshman Early-Entry - The School of Nursing Freshman Early-Entry program provides an entry into the Traditional BSN program as a college freshman, rather than as a junior.
  • RN-MSN Early-Entry - The RN-MSN Early-Entry program provides eligible first-year Hinds Community College and Northwest Mississippi Community College associate-degree nursing students with an opportunity to reserve a spot in the RN-MSN program during their first-year of ADN coursework, rather than after graduation.
  • Post-Master's DNP Early-Entry - Currently, the School of Nursing offers an early-entry option for students currently enrolled in either the University of Mississippi School of Nursing or Alcorn State University MSN program. This early-entry route allows master's students to reserve a spot in the competitive Doctor of Nursing Practice program after completing the first semester of MSN coursework.
