Nursing, B.S.

The curriculum is divided into biological, social sciences, and humanities as a foundation for courses in the major; and nursing courses, which emphasize relationship-based care, reflective thinking, clinical decision making, and the use of evidence-based guidelines to develop quality and safe clinical skills. Clinical experiences are offered in area hospitals and in community health agencies. The senior year culminates in a capstone practicum in which students apply curriculum concepts in a precepted clinical experience.

The faculty of the nursing program believe learning is a creative process wherein students are active participants in their education, growth, and development as professional nurses. Faculty members are facilitators and mentors to students within a supportive, scholarly environment.
