BSN Program Details
Students graduate with the communication, computer, leadership, and critical thinking skills that are vital in today’s complex health care environment. In addition, our graduates consistently achieve pass rates on the NCLEX licensure exam that exceed the state and national averages. Alumni are successful in all areas of nursing and in graduate education.
Students obtain clinical practice in a variety of settings. Initially, and at intervals throughout the curriculum, students learn nursing skills in our Clinical Learning and Research Center. This center offers a hospital-like environment with high tech equipment, including virtual reality IV simulators and high fidelity human patient simulators. The human patient simulators represent different age groups, providing students at all levels with opportunities to practice critical thinking and hands-on skills in a non-threatening environment. This practice allows students to feel more comfortable in actual clinical areas and helps them identify and intervene in “low occurrence, high risk” situations more quickly.
For their hospital based experiences, students have clinical rotations in a variety of settings including medical centers, regional hospitals, and community hospitals. In these experiences, student work closely with the faculty member. The ratio of students to faculty is eight to one. Students obtain public health experiences in health departments, hospices, schools, and community centers.
