The BSN degree program educates pre-licensure students to enter the profession of nursing as beginning practitioners and prepares all graduates (i.e. pre- and post-licensure) to provide competent and compassionate nursing care to individuals, families, and communities within the rapidly-evolving United States health care system.
Graduates of the pre-licensure baccalaureate program are eligible for licensure in every state in the United States. Satisfactory performance in the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) as prescribed by the respective state results in the graduate being known as a registered nurse (RN).
