Undergraduate Programs

Perhaps you’ve always dreamed about becoming a nurse. You want to make a difference. You realize that health care is a big part of people’s lives, and you want to help people become well, live better and even die with dignity. If so, our Traditional program  is the one for you.

Perhaps you are an RN and know nursing is a well respected and well paying career, and one where the opportunities have never been better. You can choose to work virtually anywhere, from a small rural clinic to a large urban hospital. Find your niche in a variety of specialties – ER, OB, ICU, pediatrics, school nursing, cardiac, or many more. Check out our RN to BSN  program.

Perhaps it’s important for you to never stop learning once you’re out in the “real world.” Health care continues to advance, so as a nurse, you will always be challenged to learn new things to provide care in better ways. Plus, nursing offers you great opportunities for career advancement into management or teaching with a Master’s or Ph.D. degree.
