School of Nursing

The faculty and staff of the School of Nursing welcome you to our website. Information is available about a career in nursing and about opportunities available to you at the University of the Virgin Islands.

We have two generic nursing programs on two campuses. On the St. Thomas Campus we offer the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and on the St. Croix Campus we offer the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree. Graduates of both programs are eligible to apply to take the licensure exam, NCLEX-RN, in any state or territory. For registered nurses interested in completing the BSN degree, programs are available on both campuses.
