Registered Nurse Students
Registered nurse student is a student who (1) is a graduate from either an associate degree program in nursing or a diploma nursing program; (2) is registered to practice nursing in Mississippi with an unrestricted RN license and (3) is admitted to and enrolled in The University of Southern Mississippi with the nursing major.
Registered nurse students must also complete prerequisites and health requirements. The prerequisites may be taken at The University of Southern Mississippi or at another accredited college or university. See the University Undergraduate Bulletin for limitation of transfer credits.
For registered nurse students, the NCLEX RN licensure exam will be used to validate previously earned nursing credit. Students will register for validation courses that include NSG 307, NSG 361, NSG 362 and NSG 363 during enrollment in the program. An unrestricted Mississippi nursing license is required for admission to the RN-BSN program.
