Licensure and Certification Disclosures

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Licensure Disclosure

The curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at Provo College has been designed to meet the educational licensure requirements in Utah as well as prepare students to apply to the Utah State Board of Nursing to sit for the NCLEX licensure exam in the State of Utah (see https://dopl.utah.gov/ for more information regarding licensure in Utah). The nursing boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure for their state. Requirements may vary state to state and may change at any time. Students who intend to use their Provo College BSN degree to secure licensure in any state other than Utah will need to review the professional licensure disclosures in that state pertaining to their program and consult with the applicable state nursing licensing board. For more information, see Nursing Board Contact Information by State or Territory – BSN and MEPN Programs for a listing of state nursing licensing boards and determinations made by the College by state of whether the BSN curriculum meets licensure requirements, does not meet licensure requirements or where a determination has not been made. NOTE: Graduates who become licensed in Utah may subsequently apply for licensure in another state. Ask your Academic Dean about Nursing reciprocity agreements.
