BSN Program Details
The Nursing Laboratories at Carroll College are among the premier nurse training facilities in the nation. From the sophomore year on, Carroll's laboratory equipment and high-tech simulated patients-the most advanced available anywhere-allow students to experience the challenges nurses face in any treatment scenario, from patient assessment to labor and delivery to emergency situations. Yes, it's stressful, but studies show these simulated nursing experiences make graduates of the program less likely to experience performance anxiety once they are out in the real world of nursing. Our students also excel in nursing skills performance, from inserting an IV and installing tubes to catheter care. Challenge now builds confidence when it really matters.
At Carroll, the faculty is our greatest strength, and nursing students can expect extensive personal attention and guidance from professors in the classroom, laboratory and clinical settings. A Carroll nursing education translates to an intensive internship in the profession. You will enter the profession prepared to succeed in the real world.
Clinical experience begins in the 200-level nursing courses, so you can apply theoretical knowledge early and make sure this is the career for you. Clinical occurs in diverse community settings, varying from Helena’s hospitals to public health, assisted-living, long-term care, home-visits, and psychiatric and school settings. Each nursing course at Carroll provides quality, personalized learning experiences and experienced faculty.
The department of nursing is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). This accreditation guarantees you as the student that the program has to demonstrate rigorous quality indicators related to the curriculum including student success outcomes, evaluation, faculty qualifications and more. We are also fully approved by the Montana Board of Nursing and this designation is mandatory if you want to be eligible to take the licensing examination (NCLEX-RN) to become a registered nurse. These two indicators of quality is what you should look for in choosing a program.
