What You'll Study

Coursework

The BSN program provides students the knowledge, skills, and abilities to function effectively in all areas of nursing practice through quality instruction and clinical experiences. Clinical experiences encompass not only acute care settings, but also community and home care, ambulatory care, and primary care settings. The program provides students the opportunity to apply didactic knowledge in a variety of hands-on and simulated clinical settings, and lays the groundwork for continuing one’s professional education at the graduate level.

Experience-based Education

Outside the Classroom

In addition to the four semesters of required coursework, nursing students are required to complete 765 hours in a clinical, laboratory or simulation environment, which prepares them to encounter a wide range of clinical settings and challenges.

The state of the art simulation center features patient rooms, classrooms, debriefing rooms and equipment to simulate real world heath care conditions.

Through the Center for Nursing Research, students have the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge research, and as part of a larger health sciences university, exciting opportunities exist to collaborate with other health care disciplines.

Career Options

Nurses can be directly involved in patient care and case management, or seek health care leadership roles by pursuing graduate degrees in nursing. 

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects nearly 195,000 average annual openings for registered nurses between 2020 and 2030, with employment projected to grow 9%. In 2020, the median age of a registered nurse was 52, with one-fifth saying they planned to retire within five years, a trend that was accelerated by the pandemic.
