Curriculum

Advanced standing credit of 30 hours for an associate degree or a diploma in nursing and a registered nurse license are required prerequisites for the program. You can begin the program while completing prerequisites, however this will lengthen the time to degree completion. 

 

Coursework includes nursing theory, global health, research and community nursing as well as an extensive review of culture, leadership and management principles and current trends and issues in the profession. The program culminates in the capstone course. Two courses have a clinical component in which assignments are made and completed based on your schedule and location.
