Nursing program (BSN)
Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) has partnered with Samuel Merritt University on an innovative Nursing Program. Students enrolling in this program study at NDNU for five semesters, completing a rigorous curriculum in science and liberal arts. After the five semesters of study at NDNU, students then transfer to Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, California to complete two years of theory and clinical based curriculum, resulting in a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from Samuel Merritt University.
Each spring semester, 10 qualified students will be admitted to transition to Samuel Merritt University. If the number of qualified students exceeds 10, candidates will be selected based on additional criteria including GPA, TEAS scores and grades in specific upper division science courses.
