Undergraduate Programs

 

The School of Nursing at the Brooks College of Health offers three (3) tracks for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The curriculum is community-based in that it supports engagement with the community throughout the nursing major, nurturing and building relationships with community agencies consistently over time through an innovative home-basing of students in a designated community for the entire length of their nursing program.
