Missouri State's nursing program is selective, but student-centered, allowing students to receive more one-on-one attention from faculty members, who bring a variety of experience to the program and have strong ties to providing service to the community. Faculty members want to help students make professional connections that will last long after graduation.
During the 4-year BSN, students can have a traditional University experience while completing an exceptional clinical program. Students complete 576 or more clinical contact hours within acute care and community settings. These hours are spent one-on-one with a faculty member or a nurse preceptor, a nursing professional who serves as a teacher and mentor in this real-world classroom setting. Not only are students learning, but also they are giving back to those in need of care.
The 4-year BSN program at Missouri State has full approval of the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
