Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

The BSN program is limited access and highly competitive. As the program is very rigorous, it demands commitment on the part of the student. Clinical experiences occur in a wide variety of hospital and community settings serving diverse populations. For the pre-licensure students, there are 840 total program hours of clinical and laboratory experience. Our BSN graduates are prepared as general clinical practitioners and scholars in caring science; eligible for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) in order to secure licensure as a Registered Nurse; and prepared for graduate study in Nursing.

The College of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and has multiple points of distinction. We have a prestigious and highly accomplished faculty who are practitioners and scholars in caring science. We have one of the most diverse and accomplished student bodies in the country and we have a high NLEX-RN® pass rate. All programs in the College of Nursing are endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Certification Corporation which means BSN students are eligible to be certified by the AHNCC upon graduation.
