The objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing are to utilize theory and evidence-based practice to provide safe, quality, patient- centered care; to teach care of patients by using clinical judgment, critical thinking, and knowledge of best practices; and to be eligible for licensure. The program creates an environment where competency-based learning can flourish. It helps prepare graduates for nursing practice and leadership roles. Nursing practice is both a caring art and a human science developed using nursing knowledge, theory, and research within a holistic, caring framework. Nursing education introduces the science and theory of nursing and assists students with developing an understanding of the distinct perspective of the nursing discipline.
