Integrative classroom learning

We emphasize the Christian aspects of commitment, compassion and patient care across the BSN degree curriculum, along with rigorous liberal arts and science courses. Throughout the nursing program you will get life-like practice, too. We have state-of-the art clinical simulation labs, including one advanced simulation laboratory, a maternal-child simulation lab, a psychiatric-mental health laboratory equipped with state-of-the art high and medium fidelity human simulators and audio-visual equipment; and a physical assessment laboratory.

While working toward your BSN you’ll get to participate in community-based disaster drills, and many students also complete research projects in collaboration with regional clinical institutions.

Clinical-based learning

Outside the classroom you get to apply what you’ve learned in some of Pennsylvania’s most outstanding clinical settings, such as general and specialty hospitals (including three magnet hospitals); skilled nursing facilities for long-term care; schools; churches; free clinics; nurse-managed health centers; and many more. You’ll be well prepared to pass your licensure exam the first time and to find an exciting job in nursing.
