Cooperative and Other Nursing Agreements

Millsaps maintains cooperative and other nursing agreements with The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) School of Nursing, Vanderbilt University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) School of Nursing:

2-2 BSN Program

If you wish to participate in the Early Entry Program, you must meet with Professor Kurt Thaw, director of pre-health sciences, during the first few weeks of your first semester. The deadline for consideration for Early Entry is November 1. Early Entry status means that you will be automatically eligible to enroll in the School of Nursing at UMMC upon successful completion of pre-requisite courses. Students wishing to participate in the Early Entry Program must have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 and an ACT score of 25 or higher.

3-2 BS/BSN Program

Under this plan, you will complete the prerequisite courses for nursing school and most of the degree requirements for either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in selected disciplines during three years of study at Millsaps College. You then enroll in a two-year curriculum at the School of Nursing at UMMC. Upon completion of the requirements for the bachelor of science in nursing, you may transfer back to Millsaps for up to 12 hours of approved nursing courses to satisfy the requirements for a Millsaps degree. At that time, Millsaps will confer the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science in the appropriate discipline. You will earn a bachelor’s degree from both Millsaps and the University of Mississippi School of Nursing. If you plan to pursue the 3-2 program in nursing, you may also be eligible for the Early Entry Program.
