Dual Degree Nursing Program: a 3+1 program leading to a B.A. from Hanover and a B.S.N. from one of our partner programs.

Why study Nursing in Hanover's 3+1 option?

Through Hanover's accelerated 3+1 opportunity, you can earn two degrees in less than 4 1/2 years. Our innovative partnerships with Valparaiso University and Northern Kentucky University guarantee acceptance for a minimum of five qualified Hanover students at both institutions' Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs. 3+1 pre-nursing students complete three years at Hanover as a Health & Movement Studies major and then finish the partner school's 16-month accelerated bachelor of science in nursing program.

A second 4+1 option allows for pre-nursing students to complete four years at Hanover and then finish up with the 16-month bachelor of science in nursing degree at the partner school.

After successfully completing 3 or 4 years at Hanover and the 16-month A.B.S.N., participating students will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN exam). Information on each program's NCLEX pass rate can be found in the corresponding links.
