MINE Option: Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing
The Mobility in Nursing Education (MINE) option is designed for registered nurses (ADN or diploma) as an alternative and accelerated educational program for the baccalaureate degree. The curriculum is constructed to augment prior learning and professional experiences of the RN. The program is offered totally on-line to allow the RN the opportunity to attend school while still working. Clinical experiences in NURS 4501 and NURS 4631 are structured to enhance previous learning and develop higher levels of critical thinking as a BSN prepared registered nurse.
The curriculum flow is designed for the RN to complete the degree requirements in 12 months of full time study (2 regular academic semesters and 1 summer). Part time study is an option for those who cannot take a full semester of course work. The RN-BSN courses are web based offerings.
The RN enrolled in the MINE option is awarded 30 SCH of advanced placement credit with successful completion of all requirements. For the RN seeking to graduate with honors, an additional 15 SCH must be taken in order to meet the University requirement of completing 45 SCH at UT Tyler to graduate with honors (see graduation with honors requirements).
RN-BSN/MSN Licensure Requirement
All Registered Nurses in the MINE track must have a current, active license in the state in which they reside and practice in order to be eligible to complete the required curriculum.
