department of nursing
the baccalaureate nursing program consists of two tracks:
- a generic nursing program providing all general education and professional coursework to enable a student to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing and qualify to take the national council licensure examination for registered nurses (nclex-rn).
- a rn- baccalaureate completion program exclusively designed for students who are registered nurses (rn) (graduates of diploma and associate degree nursing programs) who desire to earn a baccalaureate degree.
each program will prepare a generalist professional nurse to deliver professional nursing care in a variety of settings, with a focus on primary level intervention (prevention of illness/disease and maintenance of health) with the purpose to:
- prepare a professional practitioner of nursing
- provide a foundation for graduate study in nursing
