The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program prepares you for a career as a professional registered nurse. The coursework in the BSN program enables you to take the NCLEX-RN exam in any state in the US, and prepares you for life-long learning including graduate education. BSN graduates are prepared to work across the care continuum, in hospitals, community agencies, home health care, hospice, skilled nursing facilities, mental health facilities and more.
Saint Martin’s nursing students and BSN graduates will live out the university core values of faith, reason, service and community, by being committed to making a positive difference in the lives of others by alleviating suffering, addressing social inequities and eliminating health disparities.
Why Saint Martin's BSN program?
Saint Martin’s is building a BSN program that will prepare nurses to practice in the 21st century.
Healthcare is dynamic and complex, therefore BSN students will develop critical thinking skills in the Saint Martin’s liberal arts core, and layer on the knowledge and skills of the rigorous nursing program to be prepared to practice in an ever-changing care environment.
To meet the challenges of preparing the 21st century nurse, Saint Martin’s will have:
- New science building, classrooms and labs for pre-requisite courses
- New state-of-the-art nursing learning labs, including a dedicated simulation lab
- Dedicated nursing student study lounge near nursing learning labs
- Clinical experiences at local acute care facilities, including Providence St. Peter’s hospital and Capital Medical Center, as well as community sites including skilled nursing facilities, schools, home health, hospice and public health.
