Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Excellence in the community

During the four-year BSN, students can have a traditional university experience while completing an exceptional clinical program. Make friends on campus and get the support of your nursing cohort.

Not only do students learn but they also give back to those in need of care. Our community-based program will give you exposure to different environments such as a physician office, health department and school nursing.

Our program is selective, but student-centered, allowing you to receive more one-on-one attention from faculty members who help students make professional connections that will last long after graduation.
