Undergraduate students learn the essentials of nursing care in the classroom and an advanced simulation lab. They practice skills learned in a wide range of facilities, including hospitals, community settings and clinics, caring for patients after surgery, providing health screenings for pre-school children, administering flu vaccines to adults and caring for new mothers and their babies.
The bachelor’s degree program is available for first-time nurses through the traditional and Achieving Curriculum Expeditiously (ACE, fast-track) options. The ACE option allows students with degrees in another field or heavy science background in a bachelor’s degree to complete degree requirements more quickly.
