BSN Program Curriculum

3-Year BSN Curriculum

At Chamberlain you will benefit from a student-centric learning environment enhanced by small class sizes, individualized instruction and diversified clinical learning opportunities. Our faculty and curriculum emphasize learning over teaching. At Chamberlain, you are evaluated on your ability to analyze, synthesize and apply the information you have learned.

The BSN nursing curriculum prepares you for the practice of professional nursing. This is accomplished through an integration of theoretical knowledge, psychomotor skill acquisition and development of clinical judgment/reasoning. The curriculum integrates professional, ethical and legal standards with decision-making, problem-solving and leadership development. The curriculum is designed to promote lifelong learning for our graduates.
