Prepare for a career as a BS in Nursing. Our traditional bachelor’s in nursing program seeks to admit current high school seniors and recent graduates who experienced a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. You’ll earn your degree in three years and graduate ready to take the NCLEX-RN licensing exam.
The Institute of Medicine recommends that 80% of the nursing workforce earn a BS degree in Nursing (BSN). Employers look for a BSN and require those without it to earn it.
The need for nurses is projected to grow 15% from 2016 to 2026.
Besides traditional nursing, jobs include:
- Nurse Manager
- Health Educator
- Case Manager
- Quality Coordinator.
- Full Time
- A level of Proficient or higher on the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)
