College of Nursing

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The Bachelor of Science in nursing is a community-based, holistic program focused on a health and wellness model that educates future nurses in the skills of communication, coordination and cooperation with other health care professionals. Following successful completion of the program, students are qualified to sit for the registered nurse licensure examination and are also qualified to sit for the holistic nurse certification examination.
