The four-year program provides a solid foundation in liberal arts and sciences alongside specialist nursing courses. The first two years combine liberal arts and sciences elements and basic theoretical nursing courses. Major clinical nursing courses are taken in the junior and senior years.
Classes are taken in all areas of nursing practice, including nursing of adults, nursing of childbearing families, nursing of childrearing families, psychiatric-mental health nursing and community health nursing. Senior year concludes with an intensive clinical experience to further develop clinical and professional nursing skills.
Graduation requirements include completion of the 122-credit curriculum in academic good standing and the successful completion of a comprehensive nursing exam. Each semester, students must complete all nursing courses with grades of "C+" or above in order to progress to the next semester.
Students should consult the University’s Undergraduate Catalogue for further details about the program.
