Welcome to Nursing
The Registered Nursing Program is a four-semester program of concentrated study (after the completion of program prerequisites) which prepares a diverse body of students to become safe, competent, and caring practitioners for entry level positions in health care settings in the community, while cultivating professionalism, an appreciation for other peoples and cultures, and a desire for life-long learning.
Coursework in the biological, social, and behavioral sciences and humanities serves as the basic foundation in the nursing program. The program integrates theoretical instruction in the classroom with small group discussions and clinical experiences in hospitals, home health care agencies, and other settings in the community. Students also have the opportunity to participate in simulated clinical experiences and practice clinical skills in the state-of-the art Simulation Laboratory and Nursing Learning Laboratory.
