Preparing leaders for one of the most in-demand professions in the nation—the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects nursing jobs to increase 26 percent by 2020—our BS in Nursing helps meet that demand. Our program provides nurses with the knowledge and skills to assume influential roles in healthcare that extend beyond traditional practices and healthcare facilities. Our graduates possess the expertise, values and vision to serve their communities as highly qualified caregivers and leaders in the profession.

We also offer the Accelerated BS in Nursing Program program for people changing careers and the RN to BS in Nursing program specifically for registered nurses.
