Nursing
The undergraduate Nursing program combines comprehensive study in the liberal arts and sciences with nursing theory and clinical experience and leads to the Bachelor of Science degree. Its main thrust is to educate graduates to provide a wide range of professional nursing services to individuals, families, and communities throughout the life cycle.

The underlying philosophy of the program takes into account the evolution of the nurse’s
role beyond that of the traditional provider of health care in the hospital to that of a primary provider of health care in the community.

The program provides a conceptual framework for nursing practice grounded in the liberal arts and sciences. Self-growth and critical thinking are encouraged and fostered throughout the curriculum. Students are taught to use the nursing process in concert with clients to promote health. A working knowledge of the research process provides a basis for theory based practice. Leadership skills are developed providing students with the ability to practice nursing as part of a multidisciplinary health team.

All students must provide documentation of completion of, or current registration in, an approved NCLEX-RN review course before they will be approved to take a state NCLEX-RN examination.

Graduates are qualified for examination for licensure as Registered Nurses. In addition, they have the preparation necessary to begin graduate study in nursing.
