Frequently Asked Questions
How many are admitted to each class?
The number of students admitted to each class is a decision made by the Dean, with consideration given to faculty numbers, availability of clinical sites, the severity of the nursing shortage, and other factors. Typically, 16 students are admitted each year to the accelerated curriculum option.
What are the options with this major?
UND offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, as well as various master's degree tracks and a PhD program--so the sky is the limit! BSN-level graduates are employed in community-based nursing (home health, hospice, school nurse, public health nurse, mental health nurse) and hospital nursing (pediatrics, obstetrics, labor and delivery, intensive care, emergency room, cardiac care, surgery, general medical, psychiatric, and oncology, to name a few). This is a degree which offers many choices of work settings and patient populations. Nursing is also a hands-on major, with laboratory, clinical simulation, and clinical experiences incorporated into the program, in addition to the theory content.
How much does it cost?
All courses in the accelerated curriculum option are funded through the Office of Extended Learning. Each course is listed as either a hybrid course or an online course. Hybrid and online courses have special course requirements and tuition rates. Tuition for these courses is charged per credit hour regardless of the number of credits in which you are enrolled. Students in the Accelerated Nursing Curriculum pay in-state tuition. Learn more about UND tuition and fees.
Are there extra costs for the nursing program?
Yes. Nursing program fees of $500 per full-time student per semester are assessed once a student is admitted to the undergraduate program. Additionally, there are some costs associated with equipment, uniforms, and training (i.e. CPR) to be considered. During the third semester of the curriculum, students participate in a distance clinical "immersion" experience that may last 4-6 weeks. Additional housing and travel costs are incurred during this experience. Students may also select to complete 8 weeks at a distance during the last semester of the curriculum during the Nursing Practicum course. Those who select to do that course at a distance are responsible for the additional costs of that experience.
What scholarships are available?
Pre-nursing students should consult the UND Financial Aid website for scholarship information as most nursing scholarships are restricted to students admitted to a program.
The UND College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines offers various scholarships to nursing students. Applications are accepted each spring semester. A search on the web for nursing undergraduate scholarships will also yield many results.
