The School of Nursing is growing with a large community of nursing alumni. Established in 1969, nursing had its first graduating class in 1973. Our goal is to help students graduate with confidence and competence and excel in patient care. The School of Nursing is housed in Cockroft Hall and has undergraduate campus-based program routes for the BSN and a 16-month Accelerated BSN (offered to students with a first degree). The program also offers an online RN-BSN for working nursing profesionals. The Master of Science Nursing degree has the Clinical Nurse Leader as the first "track" for the MSN degree.

Mission 

The mission of the School of Nursing is to provide excellence in nursing education within a Christian institution, preparing nurse generalists to engage in professional practice in diverse settings and to positively impact the profession of nursing. 

The objective of the MSN degree program is to prepare qualified nurses for leadership roles in clinical/educational advance practice nursing. Successful completion of the MSN-Clinical Nurse Leader Track will prepare the student to: lead effectively in a multidisciplinary team; budget effectvely within a financial framework; deliver care within an ethical framework; apply evidence-based practice to improved outcomes for patient care; and deliver advanced skills and competency.

The End of Program Outcomes (EPOs) of the MCSON are designed to prepare a graduate nurse generalist who will:

  1. Engage in clinical reasoning in the context of Christian Caring to deliver safe, holistic, patient-centered care to diverse populations across the lifespan in a variety of settings.
  2. Analyze professional responsibility and accountability for one's own knowledge, learning and critical thinking as the foundation for evidenced based health care delivery.
  3. Appraise information technology approaches that support the provision of safe, ethical, and quality care to diverse populations.
  4. Evaluate management and leadership concepts in the delivery of quality patient-centered care.
  5. Evaluate communication techniques, collaborative skills and clinical prevention interventions that facilitate safe, quality outcomes with patients, families and populations.
