The BS Nursing Program prepares graduates for leadership roles and graduate study in nursing by providing a broad foundation in general studies, sciences and nursing. The graduate is prepared to synthesize theory and research based knowledge in provision of care to the client, family and community in a global society with flexibility to adapt to the changing nature of health care and health care roles, integrate care across multiple settings, and manage the interactions between and among components of the integrated networks of health care services.
Student Nurses begin their nursing education in the Nursing Resource Center where they learn basic nursing principles and procedures through classes and practice. Next door to the Nursing Resource Center is a Simulation Center, where students have the opportunity to practice skills using an advanced simulation model. The Nursing Media Lab is where students can gather for quiet study or to use the computers. Specialty software for nursing studies is available.
