Professional nursing involves three fundamental aspects of practice: care of the sick in and across all environments, health promotion, and population-based health care.
Nurses with Bachelor's Degrees in Nursing have an increased focus on health promotion and risk reduction among individuals and populations, and are called upon to design and implement measures to modify risk factors and promote engagement in healthy lifestyles.
Students will be prepared to enter a workforce that is changing rapidly. As generalists in professional nursing practice, they will enter a wide variety of nursing roles in traditional and non-traditional settings. They will be able to assume leadership in the current and the future health care system and will be ready for the adaptations required by today's health care professionals.
