The School of Nursing offers pre-licensure and R.N. to B.S.N. tracks leading to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.)  degree. The curriculum provides a broad general education and a solid professional program based on a nursing model (the Roy Adaptation Model) rich in content and applicability. Our goal is to produce an educated individual who is a professional nurse.
