The recently redesigned Pre-Licensure BSN program can be completed in two calendar years.  With year-round course sequencing, the program has a strong clinical focus and prepares graduates to provide nursing care for patients across the lifespan in a variety of health care settings. By directly engaging the ever-changing healthcare system, nursing students gain exciting and valuable first-hand experience with patients and other health care team members.   

The Pre-Licensure BSN programs small cohort sizes allow for personal contact with highly experienced clinicians and the infusion of innovative learner-centered teaching strategies in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical settings.  Across the curriculum, nursing students experience real-to-life patient experiences through small group collaboration, problem-solving discussions, simulated patient experiences, hands-on skill development, and much more.
