Many students choose to go on for graduate nursing education to pursue careers as nurse practitioners, 护士麻醉师, 护士教育工作者. Those pursuing advanced degrees in nursing need the strong foundation in nursing experience gained through the BSN program. We believe students should be engaged in nursing education during their entire academic program, which is why BSN students begin taking nursing classes their first semester and start clinical rotations during their freshman year.
The program is approved by the PA State Board of 护理 and consists of a minimum of 121 credits.
