Program Mission

The mission of the Nursing Program is to provide an evidence-based curriculum to prepare future nurse leaders and life-long learners. We educate students to become professional nurses who will deliver person-centered, ethical, holistic, compassionate, safe, and effective care.

The Benedictine College Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program (BSN) is based on a framework of the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). The professional nurse who graduates from Benedictine College is educated through a four-year degree with a major in nursing. This educational process includes preparation in the liberal arts; behavioral, biological, and natural sciences; communication; and higher-level thinking abilities. The program prepares the graduate at the entry level into professional nursing practice and facilitates the acquisition of competencies as clinician, advocate, educator, leader, manager, and colleague.

The candidate for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree must complete all the general education degree requirements of the College.
