Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Grounded in Jesuit and nursing traditions, our pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing focuses your practice on community, reflection, servant leadership, and social justice. You'll learn to promote health, to care for patients with acute and chronic illnesses, and to support patients and their families when they need it most.

We've crafted your curriculum around the framework of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS), a highly interdisciplinary and interconnected approach that builds your skills and experience one step at a time. As your journey unfolds, you'll go from caring for patients with simpler, more predictable healthcare needs to working with individuals, families, and whole populations with complex needs and within intricately complex organizational settings.

After completing our program, you'll be able to work as a nurse, with a practice grounded in leadership, professionalism, effective communication, and safe, competent, ethical care.
