Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) 

We offer several options to earn a BSN including the following:

Building on a strong science and liberal arts base, the nursing curriculum uses a concept-based approach to enhance students' clinical reasoning. Using exemplars to illustrate each of the concepts, students learn to assimilate and sort information while recognizing patterns. The program is designed to be completed in 4 years.
