About Our Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree in Nursing
The major in professional nursing leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in nursing and concentrates on nursing theory, evidence-based practice, policy, management, family, and community health.
This interdisciplinary program takes a systems approach to the problems, principles and practices of today’s complex healthcare system, incorporating conceptual and theoretical knowledge with an understanding of the complex cultural environment. Cohorts of twenty nurses meet once a week for four hours. Evening cohorts begin in January and April and meet from 6 to 10 p.m. while the daytime cohort begins in very late August and meets from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Applications can be submitted at any time, but cohorts fill very quickly.
Study in this program exposes you to the knowledge and skills necessary for you to:
- Understand the changing nurse roles in community-based environments and institutional settings with the advent of managed care and integrated delivery systems.
- Apply skills and theories in the classroom and through your evidence-based research project
- Evaluate issues and concepts central to the practice of professional nursing through the perspectives of historical, cultural, biblical, and ethical standards.
