The purpose of the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing program is to prepare registered nurses to provide holistic healthcare to individuals, families, and communities. A graduate from this program is prepared to use theory and research-based knowledge as a designer, coordinator, and manager of holistic healthcare in diverse settings. The program is grounded in Christian principles and integrated with courses from the arts and sciences that enrich the program of study and contribute to the development of a broader worldview of nursing. The graduate is provided the ability to enhance professional growth, facilitate career mobility, and have a foundation for graduate work.
