New BSN Curriculum Announced
The Department of Nursing oversaw a change in the curriculum (sequence of courses) for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) program beginning in the Fall Semester 2010.
New Curriculum . . . Same Quality Education
Courses may change, but one thing stays the same: students enrolled in the BSN program in the College of Health and Human Services can be totally assured of receiving the highest quality education possible. Both the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs are accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), www.nlnac.org
The BSN program has incorporated the latest recommendations made by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), http://www.aacn.nche.edu/index.htm, a national nursing organization whose exclusive purpose is to establish quality standards for baccalaureate and higher-degree nursing education programs. These recommendations are a part of a document The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, adopted in October, 2008.
The bottom line is this: nursing is the nation’s largest health care profession. Nurses are the true backbone of the American healthcare system. They’re the ones whose care makes a real difference in patients’ lives.

Transferring to the New Curriculum
Students, here are three things to keep in mind:
- Fall 2010 students started under the new curriculum. Students who wish to transfer from the old curriculum to the new curriculum are asked to set up an appointment with Linda McCann at email@example.com to discuss how the transfer will affect them.
- Those students who are currently near the end of the BSN degree program have another year to finish their final coursework.
- Those students who are not within a year of finishing their nursing courses are asked to schedule an appointment with Linda McCann (firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to transfer over to the new curriculum.
