BSN Program Details
Franciscan values and tradition infuse the strong
liberal arts and professional education which is basic
in developing the professional nurse within contemporary society. Nursing is seen as a professional service performed for members of the human family who reflect the image of their Creator.
The Nursing curriculum prepares professional nurses who will be able to:
-Anticipate and respond to change that affects continuing
and new health needs of individuals, groups, and communities.
-Provide nursing care to people of all ages and diverse cultures in varying circumstances and settings.
As unique health care providers, nurses are expected
to define and evaluate their autonomous role and its impact on both the client and the health care delivery system. Advocacy for the development and delivery of health care services of the highest quality requires that these nurses collaborate with others who are engaged in health care in order to enhance the well-being of evolving local and world cultures.
It is intended that graduates with a major in Nursing will have a sound educational basis for beginning professional practice, for continuing development, for graduate study in nursing, and for accepting professional and civic responsibilities.
