BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science Degree (BS) was offered for the first time in Fall 2004 through an RN-BS upper division completion plan of study. The RN-BS completion plan of study builds on the autonomous long-standing Associate of Science (AS) two-year program. The Traditional BS Degree option as well as the RN-BS prepares the graduates for leadership roles and graduate study in nursing by providing a broad foundation in general studies, sciences and nursing. Both the BS and RN-BS graduates are prepared to synthesize theory and research based knowledge in provision of care to the client, family and community in a global society with flexibility to adapt to the changing nature of health care and health care roles, integrate care across multiple settings, and manage the interactions between and among components of the integrated networks of health care services.
