About the Program

Nurses make informed judgments every day about the health of patients of all ages in all sorts of settings—hospitals, primary care practices, home care—you name it. We provide the training students need to become nurses, including how to be a nurse in home/community agencies, ambulatory care, and a variety of hospital-based practices.

To begin, you'll need a strong foundation in human anatomy, microbiology, physiology, nutrition, and statistics. That's why the prerequisites for this program include biological, social, physical, and behavioral sciences. The rest of your curriculum will build on that foundation. For instance, you'll take leadership courses and nursing skills development courses, as well as classes that cover health care and information technology. You'll also learn about therapeutic communications, pharmacotherapy, complex health conditions, and your future role as a caregiver. Finally, before you graduate, you'll get real-world experience through clinical work and practicums guided by our highly qualified, world-renowned faculty.
