Nursing at Montana Tech
Enter the exciting world of health care in a program that offers two degrees in professional nursing—a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) completion degree and an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree. Students pursuing the BSN degree must first earn the ASN degree and then pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) in order to continue into the BSN curriculum. Students must meet minimum program requirements and complete a formal program application to be accepted into the Bachelor of Science completion degree program.
The profession of nursing is best served through highly educated members who continually strive to broaden their knowledge and expertise to meet the increasing demands of the health care environment.
We believe in a holistic approach to nursing education, including sensitivity to the physical, psychological, spiritual and sociocultural needs of the individual, family and community. Further, we strive for a continually evolving curriculum that reflects best practice.
Montana Tech's Nursing graduates enjoy a 100% placement rate and average starting salaries in the mid-$40,000 range.

"I can’t say enough about how much Montana Tech helped me prepare for the work environment and especially grad school. I haven’t had any trouble with the learning curve from undergraduate to graduate school, if anything, grad school is much easier!"
