Eastern Kentucky University (College of Health Sciences)




Eastern Kentucky University is a comprehensive, regional university. Our service region includes 22 counties in southeastern Kentucky.

Eastern Kentucky University's Baccalaureate Nursing Program was organized in 1971. In the same year, the Meditation Chapel was dedicated and its influence can be seen in the B.S.N. cap and pin. The program became part of the newly established College of Allied Health and Nursing in 1975. In 1995, the Master's of Science in Nursing Program was approved and implemented. In 1999, the college name was changed to the College of Health Sciences.

Our department has grown over the years. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program now has 3 options: the program for prelicensure students, an accelerated program for students who hold a baccalaureate degree in another field, and the Registered Nurse (RN) to BSN option. We also have a Master's of Science in Nursing (MSN) program. The BSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education until 2011. We graduated our first MSN class in 1997. Our MSN program was accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education in September 1999. All of our programs have continuing approval from the Kentucky Board of Nursing.

We offer distance education classes for our RN to BSN program at 8 sites: Corbin, Danville, Harlan County, Hazard, Manchester, Middlesboro, Richmond, & Somerset.
