At the conclusion of the program, graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) and will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN licensing exam to become licensed as a Registered Professional Nurse.
This program offers an accelerated format that allows students with previous college level work to complete the program of study in four semesters (after general education credits are evaluated and completed). The program emphasizes the Registered Nurse as a member of the interdisciplinary health care team and a member of the discipline of nursing.
