BSNA Out of State Requirements

As of July 1, 2020 the U.S. Department of Education requires all nursing programs to post on their website:

  1. A list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum meets state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification.
  2. A list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution’s curriculum does not meet state educational requirements for professional licensure or certification.
  3. A list of all states/jurisdictions where the institution has not made a determination of whether or not the curriculum meets educational requirements.

All information can be found at the National Council of State Boards of Nursing website.

Please note some states participate in Compact Licensure.

A Does Not Meet or Information Not Known (Have Not Made a Determination) does not indicate that you will be unable to obtain certification or licensure in your home state. Please check with your advisor and consult the specific state board of nursing for more information.
