Plans of Study
Due to new General Education requirements there are pending changes to plans of study that apply to all undergraduate programs, beginning with first year students admitted in Fall 2017. As a result, currently enrolled students will continue to follow our existing Traditional Plan of Study. However, students admitted as of Fall 2018 will be required to follow a new Traditional Plan of Study. This includes students admitted as freshman, and all internal and external transfer students.

Our BS in Nursing program offers students a rigorous liberal arts education combined with hands-on clinical experiences and high-tech simulation practices – providing them with a solid foundation for entry-level careers and a platform to pursue advanced nursing degrees in clinical practice, research, administration, and policy.
Students are immersed in civic engagement through service learning opportunities at home and around the world. These experiences help them to recognize the causes and innovative solutions to complex social problems, while they develop skills critical for success in the workplace. Early on, our scholars build knowledge and skills in population health and team-based care through study and clinical practice. For students who qualify, we offer direct entry into graduate-level courses allowing them to explore advanced nursing practice, research, and administration.
