Department of Nursing
The Baccalaureate Nursing Program consists of two tracks:
- A Generic Nursing Program providing all general education and professional coursework to enable a student to earn a baccalaureate degree in Nursing and qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
- A RN- Baccalaureate completion program exclusively designed for students who are Registered Nurses (RN) (graduates of diploma and associate degree nursing programs) who desire to earn a baccalaureate degree.
Each program will prepare a generalist professional nurse to deliver professional nursing care in a variety of settings, with a focus on primary level intervention (prevention of illness/disease and maintenance of health) with the purpose to:
- prepare a professional practitioner of nursing
- provide a foundation for graduate study in nursing
