Nursing (Emphasis in Second Degree Accelerated Program) (BSN)
BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NURSING: The nurse prepared at the baccalaureate level
is a professional who has acquired a well-delineated and broad knowledge base for practice.
We believe that the role of a baccalaureate graduate is multifaceted and developed through
extensive study in the areas of liberal education, professional values, core competencies, core
knowledge and role development. This knowledge base prepares the beginning baccalaureate
graduate to function as a provider of direct and indirect care to individuals, families, groups,
communities and populations. The baccalaureate graduate is also a member of the profession
and a designer, manager and coordinator of care.
2nd DEGREE ACCELERATED BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN NURSING: A BSN option
designed for the graduate of baccalaureate program in another discipline. The option is
accelerated and all nursing course work is completed in one year of full time study.
