(following graduation from Mines)
Accelerated degree programs in nursing are available specifically for students who have completed a bachelors degree in a field other than nursing. In
South Dakota State University’s 12 month accelerated program, students take coursework and participate in lecture, on-campus labs, and clinical rotations in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities.
Consult the admissions/application web pages of the professional programs for information on required pre-requisite courses and admissions tests, application procedures, and application deadlines. Some professional/graduate programs will not accept AP or CLEP credits, online courses, or correspondence courses for
the core science and math pre-requisite requirements. Many programs also require that all pre-requisite coursework be completed within a certain period of time, e.g., within 5 years prior to application. Policies vary by school and program. Be sure you know the requirements.
