Nursing Major

What You'll Learn


What sets us apart from other programs: our passion for increasing the number of qualified people of color in the nursing field. We believe well-rounded students make the best nurses and our liberal arts-based curriculum, infused with content from the social sciences, arts, humanities and computer science as well as health and science, opens up possibilities and opportunities in a broad range of careers. As a nursing major, your end-of-program student learning outcomes (EPSLOs) will be the ability to:

  • Implement the nursing process and caring behaviors with individuals, families, and communities.
  • Utilize critical thinking and clinical reasoning to promote optimal wellness with individuals, families and communities.
  • Utilize communication, technology, and inter-professional collaboration to provide safe and effective nursing care.
  • Integrate culturally congruent care concepts for clients across the lifespan.
  • Utilize evidence-based findings for clinical decision-making in nursing practice.
  • Apply health policies, and legal and ethical concepts in nursing practice into clinical nursing practice while adhering to legal and ethical principles.
  • Demonstrate the ability to address the changing health care needs of diverse populations representing the global community.

The baccalaureate nursing program prepares students to become generalists practicing within the ethical and legal framework of professional nursing. Your education will equip you to not only meet the changing health care needs of diverse populations, but it will also prepare you to be a leader.
