RN to BSN Program Details
The accelerated BSN track is designed for individuals with a bachelor's degree in another discipline interested in pursuing nursing as a second bachelor's degree. The curriculum builds on the individual's prior educational preparation and the degree is completed in one calendar year, starting in May, with students concentrating solely on nursing courses.
Accelerated BSN students complete an intensive summer session and then join undergraduate students in the traditional program to complete the remainder of the nursing major requirements in the fall and spring. The accelerated BSN must be pursued on a full-time basis.
BSN Program Details
The goal of the Quinnipiac undergraduate nursing program is to provide graduates with a broad and basic preparation for professional nursing practice. The undergraduate nursing curriculum fosters professional socialization for future roles and responsibilities within the profession. Graduates are prepared as generalists to provide evidence-based care.
The School of Nursing prepares nursing students for entry-level professional nursing practice as skilled providers of holistic care for families and individuals of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds. Since nursing involves a wide range of responsibilities caring for patients across their life spans, the program utilizes a holistic framework throughout the curriculum.
Accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), Quinnipiac's bachelor's degree in nursing offers theoretical and clinical education as well as preparation for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN©). Quinnipiac's nursing program is also endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses' Certification Corporation.
Quinnipiac's strong affiliations with health care providers allow students to complete clinical work at institutions such as Yale-New Haven Hospital, the Hospital of St. Raphael, The Hospital of Central Connecticut, The Hospital for Special Care and Midstate Medical Center, as well as in private practices, outpatient clinics and community health centers.
The School of Nursing recently developed two partnerships to enhance the clinical experiences for students:
-A clinical partnership with Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Torrington, Conn., increases the diversity of clinical opportunities and internships in acute care hospital and outpatient clinic settings.
-A partnership with Masonicare in Wallingford, Conn., provides students with exceptional clinical experiences in sub-acute, long-term care and community health nursing.
