At present, the department offers two paths for students seeking a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing- the Generic Path along with the RN to BSN completion path. Graduates of the training program are nurse generalists who are prepared to function in six interrelated positions: advocate, clinician, leader, collaborator/coordinator, educator, and also a consumer of research.

Upon completion of the training program of study, the student will receive the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and also meet the criteria upon the recommendation of the Department Chair and also authorization of the Board of Nursing to take the National Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) to become licensed as a Registered Nurse. The training program provides a foundation for graduate education.
