Undergraduate Program

The Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) program is designed for the registered nurse who wishes to advance his or her knowledge in nursing, the sciences and the liberal arts. The program helps the registered nurse develop analytic and communication skills for professional excellence.

The curriculum focuses on holistic health promotion for the individual student, the profession, the individual client, the family, groups and the community. There is a strong emphasis on the nurse's personal development, the needs and future of the profession and the broad, accountable nursing role that is needed and expected by today's health care consumer. The program prepares the registered nurse for generalist nursing practice. A variety of faculty members, student experiences and learning environments are used to meet program and individual student goals.

Webster's program is tailored to working adults, offering part-time enrollment and eight-week terms. To accommodate individuals' unique learning preferences, classes are offered online. Typically, students complete the core nursing curriculum in 2 to 2.5 years depending on if courses are taken in the summer. Frequently, students must take additional Global Citizenship Program and/or elective courses to fulfill degree requirements. Nursing faculty advisors discuss additional requirements during the admission interview.
