BS Nursing

Nursing is both an art and a science. Professional nursing provides comprehensive health care services to clients in an effort to enable them to attain their optimal level of independence and wellness through the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health. Nursing education is an interactive process, allowing the adult learner to incorporate previously learned knowledge, building a strong foundation for providing holistic, outcomes-oriented care. The profession works collaboratively with other members of the healthcare team to facilitate optimal client outcomes. The faculty believes that the baccalaureate degree is the professional degree for nursing, providing the groundwork for the graduate degree.

Outcomes of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is designed to prepare a professional nurse who will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Provide holistic care by applying the nursing process to manage the health care needs of culturally diverse individuals, families, groups, and communities;
  2. Synthesize and apply knowledge from the humanities, the arts and letters, social and natural sciences, and nursing as a basis for decision-making in nursing practice;
  3. Collaborate as a member of the interdisciplinary health care team, in partnership with the individual, family, group, or community, to promote health and wellness, and to influence health care delivery;
  4. Contribute to the enhancement of nursing practice through the evaluation of health outcomes and the application of research;
  5. Actively participate in the role of a professional nurse through leadership and lifelong learning.


Upon completion of degree requirements, each student must make application to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). Professional nurses are prohibited in all states from practicing nursing until the examination is successfully completed and licensure has been granted. Specific information regarding licensure will be provided to the student during the last quarter of the nursing program.
