Bachelor of Science in Nursing
It’s no secret that higher levels of education are desperately needed to not only improve patient care and outcomes, but also answer increased employer expectations for higher degree levels among nurses. But if you’re up to the challenge of taking on more responsibility, and are truly inspired to do more for your patients’ health, University of Phoenix can help you. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is a critical one for LPNs/LVNs and RNs like you who want to advance their nursing credentials.
Gain the essential skills of a nurse leader
Great nurse leaders seek to improve delivery of patient care. They use critical-thinking skills to make decisions that affect patient outcomes, and ensure patients are receiving the latest innovative care best-suited to them.
Our CCNE-accredited Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree programs teach the critical-thinking skills necessary for higher-level nursing positions—making effective decisions, identifying and evaluating all available options, and understanding the reasons behind certain processes. It also emphasizes evidence-based practice that focuses on what’s best for a patient. It takes into account a comprehensive view of research—a combination of personal nursing expertise and judgment, written information and patient preferences—that lays the groundwork for providing care that improves patient outcomes.
Science-based courses, including physical, social and biological sciences, are integrated into our curriculum to provide a solid foundation on which to build your nurse leader skills that can be applied to any health care setting. You’ll be able to draw on the theories and skills you learn in the classroom and apply them immediately to your nursing practice.
We foster a collaborative learning environment through learning teams made up of 3-4 of your nursing peers. The members of your team support each other and work together on projects, helping strengthen your teamwork skills as you become a more essential member of your health care team on the job.
