Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program assists the student who has completed fifty percent of prerequisite nursing courses in entering a dynamic ever-changing profession of nursing through their BSN degree.

The program is based on a philosophical approach to nursing that includes the holistic synthesis of person, health, and environment. The School of Nursing offers the ideal foundation for the development of the professional nurse.

Our program offers several Pathways based on previous education and academic entrance criteria that support student achievement at a professional level.

Program Pathways

"I am very grateful for the encouragement I get from professors. They, and their assistants, keep simulation a safe, non-judgmental environment, which means we feel less self-conscious and we learn and absorb more."

- Sherri Southern, Class of 2019
