  • Uses a combined classroom-online delivery system
  • Includes courses integrated to provide comprehensive learning outcomes
  • Focuses on preparing baccalaureate nurses to become leaders in the nursing environment
  • Has research using evidence-based practice integrated into all aspects of the curriculum
  • Includes collaboration and interdisciplinary communication emphasized in the program
  • Ethics, quality, and safety components that are addressed throughout all coursework
  • Is a relaxed environment where student learning is both challenging abd enjoyable!

The curriculum responds to the most recent IOM report, Future for Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, Quality and Safety Education for Nurses, and incorporates the principles of Magnet status. The two primary curricular threads are leadership and evidence-based practice and all students complete a capstone project designed to assist the student and their institution to achieve overall goals and objectives.

Courses are delivered in a hybrid format on-site and on the same day and time for all five modules. Students complete some work on-site and some online to use technology and maximize efficiency for the working adult. With this format, the program will enable the student to visualize patient care from both a microsystem and professional perspective.
