Traditional 2-Year Degree

Traditional (2+2 year) Degree


Curriculum

The BSN program is an upper-division offering that requires Pre-nursing majors to complete the core curriculum courses prior to matriculation into the BSN Major. Each August, new junior students enter the 4 semester course of program study.

Instruction progresses from simple to complex, and the curriculum is sequentially organized using core and process concepts. The core concepts that are central to content development are the person, environment, health, and nursing. Interwoven with the core concepts are those process concepts that nursing uses to maintain and improve the health of persons in their environment.

Connecting the core and process concepts is the overarching desired outcome of quality health care that should be safe, effective, patient/client-centered, timely, efficient, equitable, and evidence-based.
