Facts About Nursing

Facilities & Faculty

The Nursing faculty believe in preparing their graduates for the "real world."   Based on this philosophy, clinical courses are designed to give the student practical experience in a variety of nursing settings.   The faculty have expertise in the clinical settings where students practice, and many faculty continue to practice in their specialties in addition to teaching in the classroom and clinical setting.  Specific methods that prepare the nursing graduate to enter the work force and add to marketability are: emphasis on the development of strong assessment skills; EKG interpretation; continual NCLEX review using computer based software and testing; diverse clinical experiences in open heart, cardiac care, medical/surgical units, obstetrics, home health, pediatrics, psychiatry, community health clinics, operating room, recovery room, and ambulatory care centers.

Career Opportunities


A registered nurse (RN) with a BSN prepares the graduate for many rewarding career opportunities. Numerous employers prefer applicants who have a 4-year BSN degree versus applicants with diplomas or associate's degrees.
