Nursing is a profession based on science, a culture of compassion, commitment to best practices, and connection to individuals. The practice of nursing is research-based, goal-directed, creative and concerned with the health and dignity of the whole person. The art of delivering quality nursing care depends upon the successful mastery and application of intellectually rigorous nursing knowledge.
Undergraduate Program Information
The undergraduate nursing curriculum, which integrates holism, fosters professional socialization for future roles and responsibilities within the profession. Graduates are prepared as generalists to provide evidence-based care. Bachelor’s degree nursing education prepares the graduate for entry into professional nursing practice and provides the foundation for graduate study. Three programs are offered: a Bachelor of Science in Nursing for high school graduates, an Accelerated BSN program for second-degree students, and an RN to BSN completion program (online).
Graduate Program Information
The School of Nursing offers four programs leading to a Master of Science in Nursing: Operational Leadership, RN to MSN Completion, Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner. In addition, those completing one of the nurse practitioner programs have the option to continue to the DNP degree immediately or up to two years after MSN conferral without reapplying.
A doctoral-level graduate program preparing nurse anesthetists is available for post-bachelor’s degree nurses. The school offers three doctoral-level post-master’s programs. For more information about these offerings, please see the Graduate Studies section of the catalog.
In the School of Nursing, the assistant dean for student services works with students to explore majors and career interests through individual consultations and group sessions, and guides them through a career development process. Assistance is provided with resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, conducting a job search and graduate school applications. Students can participate in experiential learning through community service as well as internships, part-time and summer employment. A health professions career fair is held every spring at the North Haven Campus.
