Program Description

Quinnipiac's BSN program offers the theoretical and clinical education students need to enter professional nursing practice. The BSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and is endorsed as a Holistic Nursing Program by the American Holistic Nurses Association. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, and are well prepared for graduate study in nursing. The undergraduate curriculum integrates a holistic approach incorporating basic, behavioral and social sciences, with a strong emphasis on evidence based nursing practice. Students are introduced to cultural, social and economic implications of health care. Beginning with the first nursing course, students benefit from well equipped labs, simulations, and clinical experiences in a wide array of health care facilities including community settings. Students are challenged to foster their abilities to think critically and develop as independent and ethical decision makers.
