  • Objectives
    The Bachelor of Science Nursing program is committed to creating nursing leaders who are highly competent, knowledgeable and committed to playing an integral role in shaping the future of health care. You will be prepared to work with persons and communities of diverse backgrounds, ages, and degrees of health and illness, in a variety of contexts. Our curriculum has five themes which are reflected in all years of the program at varying levels: primary health care/health promotion; reflective practice/critical thinking; meaningful relationships/caring/communication; political/ social justice; and personal/professional development. You will complete required professionally-related courses in areas such as anatomy and physiology, nutrition, ethics, psychology and sociology, as well as a series of required and elective courses, selected from other disciplines, to enhance and support the broad knowledge base required of professional nurses.
