You'll learn in a rich and unique environment from registered nurse educators offering academic expertise and real-world experience from a variety of clinical areas. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurses (NCLEX-R.N.), for licensure as a registered nurse (R.N.). Undergraduates are initially admitted as pre-nursing students and must apply to the B.S.N. program.
