What you'll learn

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education* (CCNE), is a program designed to develop the professional knowledge and skills of registered nurses. The curriculum builds on a foundation of biological, physical, and social sciences, which contribute to the science of nursing. The liberal arts components enhance the development of the intellectual, social, and cultural aspects of the professional nurse. This baccalaureate program includes behavioral objectives that concentrate on the development of the nurse's role as researcher, practitioner, and leader. Using human caring as a framework, registered nurses are prepared as generalists who are able to apply critical thinking, progressional skills, and knowledge to patient outcomes and health care systems. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program has a 38-credit required course of study. The required course of study includes a capstone course that synthesizes baccalaureate student learning outcomes. The required course of study fulfills only part of the 120-minimum-credit requirement for degree completion. *Nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036-1120, 202-887-6791

This program is a post-licensure education program designed for nurses with current RN licensure who wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree in the professional field of nursing. The program is designed to develop the professional knowledge and skills of registered nurses and prepare them as generalists who are able to apply critical thinking, professional skills and knowledge to client outcomes and health care systems.

Certification in Alabama

State approval of a program to offer Alabama licensed nurses opportunities for advanced degrees does not indicate eligibility for approval to practice as an advanced practice nurse in Alabama. Applicants for approval in Alabama are required to meet the Alabama requirements for national certification, graduation from a specific-type program for the advanced practice approval, and completion of the appropriate application. Any program offering a pre-licensure track to Alabama students shall meet the requirements of the Alabama regulations for pre-licensure programs or the graduates may not be eligible to take the national licensure examination required by the Alabama Board of Nursing to enter practice. www.abn.alabama.gov
