The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor has long been home to one of the best nursing programs in Texas.

Demand is growing faster than ever for nurses to have their BSN degree. Now, through MyWay at UMHB, Registered Nurses with an Associates Degree in Nursing have the opportunity to receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing through our fully online competency-based education program.


What is different about a competency-based program?

As a competency-based program, students are measured on mastering a competency, rather than seat time. As soon as you have demonstrated mastery through a project-based assessment, you can move on to the next competency. This method allows you to learn at your own pace, therefore accelerating the time it takes for you to get a Bachelors degree, more job security, and a higher salary.

MyWay at UMHB also operates in six-month subscription periods that start on the 15th of each month, rather than Fall or Spring semesters. Each subscription period costs only $3,000, and payment plans and financial aid are both available. With this much flexibility, you can earn your BSN online and start working towards the job you've always wanted as soon as next month.


What types of “courses” will I take?

Our RN to BSN program is designed around competencies instead of courses. Nursing competencies that are required to be completed at UMHB include:

  • Plan of Care
  • Levels of Evidence
  • Evaluate Interventions
  • Patient Delegation
  • Integrate Policies
  • Plan Communication
  • Nursing in the Community


Admission Requirements:

Cohorts begin on the 15th of each month, and the deadline for admissions is the 15th of the month prior to when you wish to begin. Official transcripts from all prior attended institutions must be submitted to the admissions office prior to your desired cohort's deadline.

Prospective students seeking admission to the MyWay at UMHB, Advanced Placement for Registered Nurses (RN-B.S.N.) program must:

  • Hold an active, unencumbered Registered Nurse’s license within your state
  • For new ADN graduates conditional admittances upon successfully completing NCLEX
  • Employed as a Registered Nurse
  • Overall grade point average of 3.0 or higher (based on a four-point system). Entering GPA will be calculated using all hours attempted. The one exception to this requirement concerns a course that was repeated. In this circumstance, only the last grade received for the repeated course will be used when calculating the entering GPA.
  • Have a minimum of 24 hours of specific course which will count toward the BSN degree

Students must complete 31 hours in residence at the University to be eligible to receive a baccalaureate degree. For students who hold a current RN license and an associate degree, the 10 year limit for science and other courses that are a portion of the RN to BSN curriculum is waived.
