Your Experience

Nurses assess health problems, develop plans for patient care and educate patients on disease prevention. With an expected shortfall of 1 million nurses by 2020, and nurses absorbing more responsibilities, career opportunities have never been greater. Nurses are in demand not only in acute and primary care settings, but also in new and growing fields, such as nursing informatics, which involves using patient data to improve the quality of care.

Our program is designed for individuals with a bachelor’s degree in another discipline, who are interested in pursuing nursing as a second bachelor’s degree. The curriculum builds on your prior educational preparation, and the degree is completed in 12 months, starting in August with students concentrating solely on nursing courses.

Our program prepares you to be an integral member of the health care team and a transformational leader in the field. You’ll graduate with the knowledge and expertise to advance your education with a master’s or doctor of nursing practice degree.
