UMA Nursing | Two Tracks

RN-BSN Completion Program

Study nursing with a focus on expanding roles and professional opportunities.

We appreciate that most prospective BSN students are working nurses; UMA’s program offers a combination of fully online and blended learning courses. This blended approach of e-learning with occasional face-to-face meetings will enable students to flourish in our program, no matter the demands of daily life or how far you live from Augusta.

With a holistic approach, UMA’s Nursing Program will expose you to new ways of caring, while preparing you for exciting new career opportunities or graduate level study.

BSN Collaborative Program

The Nursing program prepares graduates to sit for the RN licensure exam and entry roles in nursing practice.

UMA and UMFK have opened our new Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Collaborative Program. This program will not require travel to Fort Kent. Nursing classes will be taught at UMA’s Augusta campus. Clinical placements (3rd and 4th year) will be primarily in the Augusta region. The nursing course sequence is distributed over a four-year cycle. It may be possible to attend part-time while completing the first half of the program if students have prior college credits and/or attend summer semesters. The degree will be awarded by UMFK.

As of 6/6/17, review for advanced standing in the UMA/UMFK PINE Nursing program is closed for the 2017/18 academic year.  New transfer applicants will be considered for the following academic year.
