About the BSN
Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (BSN) offers students a dynamic course of study that is both theoretical and practical. The program prepares graduates to work in a wide variety of clinical settings and provides the necessary foundation for masters and doctoral degrees in nursing. Graduates of the BSN program will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
BSN coursework emphasizes critical thinking and clinical judgment, integration of knowledge from nursing, biological and behavioral sciences, and the humanities in the planning, implementing, and evaluating of nursing care, application of research findings to demonstrate evidence-based nursing practice, and nursing leadership, and offers a variety of hospital and community settings for clinical experiences. Admission into the BSN program is highly competitive.
Once admitted into the program, BSN students are designated by the semester in which they are enrolled. Students in the first semester of their junior year are referred to as J1s, in the second semester of their junior year as J2s, in the first semester of their senior year as S1s, and in the second semester of their senior year as S2s.
