3+1 Dual Degree Program

Bachelor of Science in Biology/Bachelor of Science in Nursing

York University and Creighton University College of Nursing have partnered to offer a dual degree program in biology and nursing.  York University and Creighton University offer a four year, faith-based education anchored in service to others both locally and globally.  The 3+1 program brings together a student’s passion for science with their desire to meaningfully contribute to the healthcare of society.  The 3+1 program provides students with an opportunity to get the full York University ​experience for three years before seamlessly transitioning to  Creighton University's Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program on Creighton’s  Grand Island, Nebraska campus.

Benefits of the 3+1 Program 

  • York University offers students the traditional college experience for the first 3 years of their college career as they pursue a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in health services
  • Creighton University College of Nursing’s ABSN Program enrolls students for 12 months. Students enroll in 58 credit hours over  three semesters. 
  • Students have the opportunity to graduate with two degrees in 4 years: a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in health services and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing  from Creighton University.
  • As freshmen, students may be admitted into the ABSN program at Creighton at the same time as admission to York University.
  • Criteria for admission for transfer students (or students seeking program admission at some point after admission as a freshman) will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Students in the 3+1 Nursing Program must:

  • ​Show evidence of 3 years of collegiate academic achievement
  • Maintain a minimum of a 3.0 GPA 
  • Complete all nursing prerequisite courses
