BSN Program Outcomes

The nursing curriculum prepares professional nurses by providing a sound educational base for practice, graduate study, professional development and accepting professional civic responsibility and life long learning.

The purposes of the BSN program are to prepare graduates who

  1. apply reasonable and reflective thinking about nursing issues and problems to arrive at effective decisions and actions.
  2. use effective communication skills in professional interactions to share information.
  3. act responsibly through caring, commitment, and concern in nursing.
  4. demonstrate local and world citizenship by participating in activities that meet the needs of people through collaboration between nursing and the community.
