The instructional design of the curriculum is planned in such a way as to meet the needs of the working, adult learner.

Clinical requirements are to be completed under the supervision of an approved preceptor.
Students have the opportunity to complete the course requirements as either full-time or part-time dependent upon their individual needs. The completion program can be completed in a minimum of 3-4 full-time semesters. Part-time options are available. Program requirements must be completed within seven (7) years.
BSN Program Details
The Finlandia University Nursing Department offers a four-year curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN). The curriculum integrates courses in the humanities, social, biological, and natural sciences with the theory and practice of nursing. The combination of both general and professional education courses provides the foundation for understanding physiological, psychosocial, and spiritual factors that ultimately affect a person's health status and includes an introduction to the economic and political factors that affect the health of the community. Clinical coursework focuses on nursing interventions designed to help persons reach their optimal health status. The curriculum is designed to prepare a well-educated citizen as a professional nurse. Upon successful completion of the Nursing Major, graduates are eligible to apply for the registered nurse licensure examination (NCLEX-RN).
Graduates of the nursing program have the opportunity to become leaders and managers in clinical nursing within a variety of health care settings, prepared to practice in rural as well as urban areas. The Finlandia University BSN program provides the stimulus and foundation for progression to the graduate level of academic preparation.
