The Bachelor of Science in nursing curriculum is designed for registered nurses (RNs) who have an associate degree and wish to advance their careers in health care.
Nurses with a B.S. degree are instrumental in planning and management, establishing standards of performance and participating in health care systems projects. A bachelor’s degree in nursing is required for acceptance into graduate-level nursing programs.
The program extends beyond the clinical aspects of nursing to provide a background in patient education, health promotion, and technology integration. We’ll help you explore essential theories such as genetics, community health, epidemiology and health care across the life span.
With a classroom-based format and experienced nursing faculty, you’ll enhance personal goals, increase earnings and improve job security. Throughout the program, you’ll be asked to experience a new nursing area of your own choosing for the course titled Field Period–allowing you to look at your practice in new ways and with new skills.
Upon graduation, our students are prepared to specialize in a variety of areas, including community health, outpatient medicine, military health, school health, home care, acute care or specialty services.
