Program Overview

Nurses are the front line of the health care system. Their compassion and caring nature contribute to the well-being of patients across the lifespan. The role of nurses has grown and changed with medical science and the needs of the health care system. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 77.4% of employers who responded to their 2021 survey on nursing school graduate employment had a strong preference for hiring nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).[1]
