Licensure and Certification Disclosures

BSN Licensure Disclosure

The curriculum for the BSN program at Provo College has been designed to meet the educational licensure/certification 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 licensure boards in each state are responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification 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 state Nursing licensing board.  For more information, see Nursing Board Contact Information by State or Territory or speak with a BSN Academic Dean.  NOTE:  Graduates who become licensed in Utah may subsequently apply for licensure in another state.  Ask your Academic Dean about Nursing reciprocity agreements.

MA Certification Disclosure

Graduates of the MA program are eligible to sit for the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) certification exam offered by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA). We have determined that the CMA certification is not required for employment in Utah.  However, we have not determined whether this certification is required for employment in states other than Utah.  Additionally, we have not determined whether the MA curriculum qualifies for other national or state certifications. Students who are located in states other than Utah or who plan to relocate should research any certification or employment requirements for their respective chosen state.
