The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed to prepare students for entry level registered nurse positions in a variety of health care environments. Graduates will use critical thinking skills for effective problem solving, decision making, and independent judgment to provide culturally competent and developmentally appropriate care in the practice of nursing and to function as a member of a health care team.

Upon successful completion of the curriculum, students are eligible to sit for the NCLEX to become registered nurses.  The graduate must apply to and meet the requirements of appropriate state board of nursing for licensure as a registered nurse, which includes successful completion of the NCLEX-RN.
