Apply to Davenport's BSN Completion program


Advance your career with a BSN degree.

North Central's partnership with Davenport University provides NCMC nursing graduates with a structured pathway to earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN).

Davenport University's BSN completion program is designed for graduates of North Central's three-year Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program* as well as other registered nurses seeking to continue their education. The NCMC-Davenport partnership allows North Central nursing graduates to earn their BSN during a fourth year spent locally, but as Davenport students. Because the program content is delivered online with some components taking place on North Central’s campus, registered nurses can continue working while completing their last year of BSN education. 

Davenport's BSN completion program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). North Central's ADN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).

*NCMC nursing graduates are eligible to receive scholarships to offset tuition costs. See Scholarship Information & Eligibility Requirements below.
