About the Program

The Profession

A nurse’s typical day might consist of performing numerous tasks, and is truly not so typical at all. Nursing is more than administering medication, checking a patient’s blood pressure, or managing their pain. It is a ministry taken to those at their most vulnerable moments: a giving of yourself to meet the needs of others.

The Program

Students in the Generic BS Nursing Option of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program will be taught by experienced, qualified nursing faculty. The blended learning format provides easy access to lecture content anytime and helps students practically apply the knowledge gained in the classroom. In the clinical environment, nursing students have access to rotations in all the local Florida Hospital campuses, providing excellent experience with renowned physicians and nurses.
