The three-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) pre-licensure track aims to prepare students for baccalaureate generalist practice where they will advocate for high quality health outcomes for the diverse populations they will serve. The program will instill the value of ongoing professional education and life-long learning that will serve as the foundation for further academic progression towards graduate education and advanced roles. Students will gain an understanding of leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and evidence-based practice concepts that will allow them to impact patient outcomes positively.
