Statement issued Friday:
Feb. 24, 2012 FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The University of Saint Francis (USF) will offer a three-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) honors track in the fall semester to high school students participating in the Achieving Credits Early (ACE) program through USF, or taking advance placement (AP) or dual credit courses at their schools, and college transfer students.
The affordable three-year program assists high school students in banking credits for early entry into the BSN. College transfer students who have completed prerequisite course work are also eligible for admission to the program.
For high school students, savings realized through the three-year BSN honors track can range from $17,000 to $30,000, depending upon the number of ACE courses completed and whether or not a student lives on the USF campus.
High school students can be accepted early into a fully accredited BSN program, and will receive personalized academic advising. Upon graduation, they can join the workforce or apply to graduate school one to two years earlier than the norm.
Fall classes begin at USF on Aug. 27. For academic requirements, a list of prerequisite high school ACE, AP or dual credit courses, prerequisite college courses, and admission procedures for the three-year BSN honors track, contact BSN/Graduate Nursing Program Director and Assistant Professor Mindy Yoder at (260) 399-7700, ext. 8510 or email@example.com; or Assistant Director of Admissions Natalie Wagoner at (260) 399-7700, ext. 6312 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
