Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program

Our BSN program was created with your needs in mind.

To allow you a more personal experience with your professors, we keep class sizes small.

To keep your college experience well rounded, we built a campus addition in 2013 that includes a large Common area for studying or relaxing with friends.

With our combined curriculum, you can take nursing-specific courses as early as the end of your first year of classes.

And we enable your growth as a nurse, by educating you in real life scenarios which prepare you for your patient interactions.

In the end, you’ll need a minimum of 129 total credit hours to graduate with your BSN. This is divided up as 69 credit hours in nursing-specific courses and 60 credit hours in liberal arts and sciences courses.

What Students Can Expect

At our Chicago campus, your classes will be taught by currently practicing nurses and seasoned professors who stay on top of the latest healthcare practices, principles and technology.

We offer Career Services to help you plan your career after graduation. You can practice interviewing and learn how to best design your resume. You’ll also get help finding employment opportunities.

You’ll leave traditional classrooms behind when you learn in our SIMCARE CENTER™. You’ll put into practice what you’ve learned and you’ll work with high-tech patient mannequins that bridge the gap between simulations and real-life scenarios.

As your education progresses, you’ll also take part in clinicals. You’ll work in live healthcare settings, where you’ll be guided by nurses who will act as your preceptors as you help real patients. These preceptors will be available to help you with procedures, answer questions and offer assistance as needed.

Additional resources are available to help you earn your BSN, including:

  • Student Academic Success (SAS) Plan – To aid your education, we measure and track your grades for early identification of possible concerns and respond with additional support.
  • Early Alert – We proactively identify students who are experiencing academic performance issues and reach out to increase student success.
  • ASPIRE – A personal-support program for students and their families to address issues with school or daily life. This service is provided at no-cost and is confidential.
  • Center for Academic Success (CAS) – Helping students succeed through tutoring, assessment, teaching and other resources.
