The Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing (BSMCON) is a private nursing school in Richmond, Virginia, affiliated with the Marriottsville, Maryland based Catholic, not-for-profit Bon Secours Health System.

History

BSMCON's history dates back to the formation of Richmond Memorial Hospital in 1957. Richmond Memorial Hospital’s School of Nursing opened in 1961 to serve as a source of nurses for the hospital. In 1993, a replacement hospital for Richmond Memorial was planned in collaboration with Bon Secours. The new hospital, Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center, opened in 1998 and the school was renamed the Bon Secours Memorial School of Nursing.

In 2010, the school launched a four-year Bachelor of Science in nursing degree and became the Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing.[1]

Academics

BSMCON offers a traditional Bachelor of Science program and an online RN to BSN program for Registered Nurses who wish to complete a Bachelor of Science in nursing.
