School of Nursing & Health Sciences

The Edna Jenkins Mann School of Nursing offers two options for students seeking a baccalaureate degree in nursing.

The RN to BSN program is for those who are already registered nurses after completing an associate degree or diploma program.

The pre-licensure program is designed for those who are entering college or returning to college who are seeking to enter the profession with a   baccalaureate degree.

The Edna Jenkins Mann School of Nursing began with the RN to BSN program in the fall of 2010. The pre-nursing phase of the pre-licensure program began in 2012.

Union College is pleased to announce the addition of a four-year program in nursing -- the first class began the nursing major in Fall 2014. Students are already enrolled taking pre-requisite courses as pre-nursing majors.

The pre-licensure track was created to serve those in the region who are not nurses who wish to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). This program will include two years of prerequisite, and liberal arts and science courses before the upper division nursing major. Admission into the upper division major will be competitive. Admission to Union College will not guarantee admission to the upper division major.

The RN-to-BSN track was created to serve registered nurses who wish to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, enhance their practice, and grow as health care professionals. The program is offered on a part-time basis so nurses may continue to work full-time as they pursue the degree.

The athletic training program prepares students to take the Board of Certification exam and/or to pursue graduate studies.

Students get excellent hands-on experience through access to multiple team physicians, clinical settings, Union’s 24 athletic programs and opportunities to intern with professional sports teams and in other settings.

The Bachelor degree program in Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, Washington, DC.

The Bachelor degree program in Athletic Training is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education, Round Rock, TX.
