Traditional BSN

The Traditional BSN Track is designed for University of Houston students who want to apply to the nursing major beginning their junior year to become a registered nurse (RN). The freshman and sophomore years will be at the University of Houston. After gaining admission in the nursing program, the junior and senior years will be taught face-to-face at the University of Houston Katy location.

Second Degree BSN

The Second Degree BSN track is offered face-to-face at the University of Houston at Sugar Land. Admission to this fast track is every Spring semester. It is twelve-months long, intensive and full-time for people holding bachelor’s or master’s degrees in other fields who want to become registered nurses (RNs). This accelerated track is designed to facilitate a career change for the more mature and experienced student.


The RN to BSN track is offered at the University of Houston at Sugar Land, University of Houston at Katy, and face-to-face/web-enhanced classes or hybrid/online. This program is specifically for working registered nurses who have completed their associate degree and subsequent RN licensure to advance their professional qualifications while continuing to live and work within the Sugar Land and greater Houston communities.
