Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program was the first program ever offered at Clarkson College and remains our most sought-after degree today. The curriculum was designed to offer students a foundation of contemporary knowledge in science, humanities and related professional disciplines with coursework that emphasizes critical thinking, health and human functioning, client- and family-centered care for diverse populations, leadership development, and therapeutic nursing interventions.
Class sizes in the BSN program are kept to a minimum and are taught by instructors with extensive experience and credibility in the nursing field. Hands-on practice in our on-campus skills lab and simulation lab, as well as in a variety of hospitals, clinics and other public health care settings, begins within your first year in the program. While the majority of BSN courses are classroom-based, you also have the option to complete a portion of your coursework online.
As a graduate of the BSN program, you are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX). After one year of professional practice as a registered nurse, you are able to enroll in the Clarkson College Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program to further your education and prepared yourself for advance nursing roles.
