A Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program prepares students to become registered nurses (RNs), teaching them to assess health conditions, communicate with patients and health professionals, assist physicians and perform various medical procedures.
Completion of the BSN program provides graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to take the required national RN licensing exam. These programs include both lecture-based classes and hands-on clinical components. Some schools accept first-year college students with a high school education into a BSN program. Others require students to complete lower-level, or core curriculum, classes before applying to the program. Candidates usually need to have a minimum grade point average and have completed specified classes with a C or better.
Nursing gives graduates the opportunity to provide direct, hands-on patient care. Probably the most popular health sciences profession, nurses work with a range of populations including the sick, injured, handicapped, and elderly in hospitals, doctor’s offices, schools, nursing facilities, and patients’ homes. Incredibly broad and diverse, the nursing major will provide you with the skills to not only help meet patients’ physical needs but their emotional needs as well.
