Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2013-2014
Up one level
The goal of the Walsh University Baccalaureate of Science (BSN) in nursing curricula is to prepare a graduate who is responsible and accountable for the application of critical thinking, communication principles, science and liberal arts knowledge, and therapeutic nursing intervention with diverse clients in an evolving health care system. The graduate is able to function in the role of caregiver, manager and coordinator of care, and leader. The four-year pre-licensure curriculum prepares the graduate to become licensed as a registered nurse. The curriculum for the registered nurse meets the adult-learner needs of the student who acquired fundamental nursing education in a diploma or associate degree program. The graduate of the BSN Program is accountable and responsible for competent nursing practice and has the foundation for life-long learning.
