BSN Program Details
Olivet Nazarene University’s Nursing programs, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, focus on more than merely equipping students with the skills they need to be competent nursing professionals. We believe in preparing students to serve.
We also know you lead a busy life. Our accelerated programs are tailored to your unique needs as an adult learner. Classes meet one night per week, online or on the weekends. Programs can be completed in fewer than 24 months. At the same time, our programs feature the academic rigor you would expect from a leading liberal arts university.
Olivet’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree-completion program is designed for registered nurses who desire to complete a bachelor’s degree. As a student in this program, you will study the health continuum across the life span of clients, develop individual and team skills, and learn to apply your knowledge in the practice setting.
MSN Program Details
The purpose of Olivet’s graduate program leading to a master’s of science degree in nursing is to provide a curriculum plan for guiding the learner with the intention of broadening the theoretical knowledge base of the learner in preparation for a leadership role and/or doctoral study. The nurse at the master’s level develops, tests and evaluates concepts relevant to nursing, critically examines concepts and theories in relation to health issues, initiates nursing research, and practices nursing in multiple dynamic roles.
The MSN program is a 32-credit-hour program in three specific areas of role concentration: nursing education, management and leadership, and emergency preparedness disaster readiness. All learners are provided the opportunity to develop a theoretical base of nursing science. Consistent with this opportunity, learners participate in plenary sessions, global learning experiences, and practicums that will heighten their professional readiness for their career as leaders in the profession.
Learners who select education as their area of role concentration are provided the opportunity of practicum experiences drawing from the theoretical base of the educational process. Learners who select management and leadership as their area of role concentration are provided the opportunity to develop a personal theory that will frame successful administrative leadership. Learning is facilitated through mentors and guided practicums that will enhance transition to a leadership role.
