Alternate Entry Program Allows Flexibility

Abstract

A new graduate program in the University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing is expected to attract a broader range of students and make nursing degrees more competitive in today's professional job market. The alternate entry master's program enables qualified non-nurses with a bachelor's degree to complete the MSN degree and take the state examination to become a registered nurse without having to obtain a BSN. Students may complete undergraduate, upper-division nursing courses while simultaneously pursuing graduate-level studies in non-clinical nursing areas.

For more information, contact Lucy Proctor, University of Texas at Austin, Box Z, UT Station, Austin, TX 78713-7509; 512-471-3151.…
