In nursing theory courses, students will explore the compassionate care given to patients from diverse backgrounds with a multitude of conditions and disorders. Progressive clinical practicums include encounters with patients of all ages across a spectrum of illnesses.

Experienced faculty serve as role models and supervise interactions between students and patients in the beginning clinical courses with collaborative instruction occurring during the intermediate and more advanced clinical experiences. Students graduate as entry-level registered nurse generalists.

We are so excited to begin the application process for our next cohort of students. The ABSN
