The Bachelor of Nursing Science Program (B.S.N.) prepares graduates to be general registered nurses. Graduates are able to provide nursing care to individuals of all ages and families from diverse cultural backgrounds in any setting offering health care services. Health promotion, health maintenance, disease prevention and teaching are emphasized in all clinical settings. The curriculum provides students with a balance between professional nursing courses and those in the liberal arts and sciences. Courses in the natural and behavioral sciences and humanities serve as a foundation for the nursing courses. Nursing courses begin during the sophomore year and continue with increasing emphasis through the junior and senior years. Clinical preparation begins in the second year of study. During clinical experiences, students are instructed by faculties who are carefully chosen for their experience as skilled nursing professionals and educators.
