BSN Program Details
The educational program for professional nursing is based on an integration of liberal arts and sciences, nursing knowledge, and clinical practice that prepares the professional nurse to practice from a caring,
holistic, and scientific foundation and to adhere to the American Nurses’ Association Standards of Practice. Professional nurses become prepared to maximize the quality of nursing care through the application of theory and research to practice and to function in a variety of roles to assist individuals, families, groups, and communities to attain, maintain, and restore health. Faculty emphasize the importance of self-assessment, as well as self-directed lifelong learning.
The faculty’s dedication to excellence in teaching, to individual
teacher/learner encounters, to the use of technology, and to role modeling of professional behaviors contributes to a broad range of individual and group learning experiences which establish a solid foundation for beginning nursing practice and graduate study.
Professional nurses serve to effect positive change in the delivery of health care and in the health of individuals, families, groups, and communities. Through progressive development of curricular concepts,
students become increasingly independent in using critical thinking skills, nursing interventions, and communication skills.
The goals of the Lynchburg College nursing program are to prepare graduates to:
1. make appropriate nursing practice decisions for persons of various ages and health states;
2. provide nursing care to promote optimum health responses in individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations representing a variety of ages, cultural backgrounds, and health states;
3. effectively communicate orally and in writing;
4. partner with others to accomplish health care goals;
5. use research to support nursing practice to improve health care outcomes;
6. demonstrate management skills useful for planning and coordinating care; and
7. demonstrate professional behaviors and values.
