BSN Program Details
Nursing is both an art and a science. Nursing is a therapeutic, helping relationship devoted to promoting, restoring and maintaining the health of individuals, families, groups and communities. The mission of the School of Nursing is to provide professional education for human services using a curriculum that is socially relevant and reflects the diverse needs of the community. Five themes serve to provide recurrent foci throughout the program: caring, health, learning, commitment to human dignity and nursing.
The nursing faculty is committed to a collaborative learning environment for students. The nursing faculty seeks to accommodate the learning needs and professional aspirations of students with varied educational backgrounds. Aurora University offers a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, which may be taken full- or part-time.
