Degree Programs and Certificates

Undergraduate Programs

The pre-licensure BSN curriculum prepares graduates for generalist practice in nursing by providing a strong liberal arts and science foundation, and an extensive range of nursing courses. The BSN degree allows graduates to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), which is required to practice as a registered nurse (RN).
