Department of Nursing


The Heart of Healthcare

Nursing is a great career choice for those with a strong desire to help others, great compassion, an ability to work under pressure, and specialized technical skills to serve both patients and other clinicians on the interdisciplinary healthcare team. The Nursing Department offers highly competitive programs that expose students to a spectrum of nursing that will prepare students for the workforce and beyond giving them the capability to adapt and perform quality nursing in a changing health environment.  Complex health care needs will require RNs to have advanced nursing knowledge in order to practice at a more intense level.  As hospitals require excellence in nursing care to achieve national recognition, RNs are highly encouraged to obtain a BSN.
