Your BSN Experience:
Our program will prepare you with the complex decision-making skills you will need for today’s health care landscape. As a graduate of our hands-on courses, you will thrive in structured health care settings, provide life-saving care, and succeed in leadership roles.
Graduates will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®). After passing this examination, graduates are eligible to begin a career as a registered professional nurse.
You will hit the ground running In your first year—participating in skills labs, simulations, and clinical experiences. As you build a foundation of nursing, pharmacology, and health assessment, you will swiftly grow in knowledge and skill.
Your clinical education will broaden in your second year. Rotating through departments within the healthcare network, you will begin working with more complex illnesses and expand your studies to community and family health. Finally, you will demonstrate your hard-earned expertise in a course that will cap the program and herald your start as an RN.
