Bachelor Degree Programs
Programs leading students to earn a bachelor of science in nursing degree combine the study of humanities and physical and behavioral sciences with professional nursing courses and clinical experience. Students are expected to demonstrate competency in critical thinking, communication and therapeutic nursing interventions when providing care for clients, families and communities. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the National Council for Licensure Exam and to apply for entrance to graduate programs in nursing.
Whether students are fresh out of high school or they have worked in the field for years, one of the four baccalaureate programs will meet their needs.
