ADN/BSN Concurrent Enrollment

Earn Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees in Nursing Simultaneously!

The Tyler Junior College Nursing program and The University of Texas at Tyler School of Nursing have formed a partnership that allows students to earn an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing from TJC and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UT Tyler at the same time.

The ADN/BSN concurrent enrollment option is for students who are motivated to complete 30 hours of BSN level coursework while simultaneously completing the TJC Traditional RN curriculum.

ADN/BSN Concurrent Requirements

To be considered for the ADN/BSN concurrent enrollment option, applicants must:

  • be offered conditional placement into the TJC Traditional RN pathway
  • meet requirements and be accepted for general admission at UT Tyler
  • have completed all Core Curriculum and BSN prerequisite courses

The concurrent enrollment option has unlimited placement and is open to all accepted students who qualify. If you are interested in the concurrent enrollment option, complete the following pre-admission steps:

  1. Visit with a TJC Healthcare Professions advisor to ensure completion of the concurrent enrollment prerequisite courses.
  2. Apply for the Traditional RN pathway during an admission period.
  3. Apply for general admission to UT Tyler.
  4. Submit official transcripts to UT Tyler for evaluation.
  5. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You need to list both Tyler Junior College and The University of Texas at Tyler on the FAFSA application.

If at any time during enrollment in the ADN/BSN concurrent enrollment option a student is not eligible to continue in the ADN program at TJC, they must also withdraw from all BSN courses at UT Tyler.
