Nursing program ranked 4th in the state

Morehead State’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program has been ranked as one of the top BSN programs in Kentucky by 

MSU ranked number four in Kentucky and is one of the best nursing schools in the nation.

Schools were evaluated on several factors, including first-time NCLEX passing rates, accreditation, program offerings and more.  

Dr. Lynn Parsons, chair of MSU Department of Nursing, said what makes MSU’s program stand out is its focus on hands-on learning based on current, practice-based curriculum.  

“Students are in clinical courses the very first semester of the program,” Parsons said, adding students in the program also receive individualized advising.  

The program also gives students a chance to serve the community, both locally and abroad. Students and faculty make an annual trip to Haiti to administer health services, and students also participate in Camp Smile, a summer camp program aimed at helping children who are grieving the loss of a parent or guardian.
