  • Produce competent nurses prepared to enter the acute care setting and other healthcare environments;
  • Complement and supplement graduate nursing residency programs established at hospitals;
  • Assimilate the nursing values and philosophies of our affiliated hospitals into the nursing curriculum;
  • Expose students to patients and the healthcare environment early in the nursing program with an emphasis on patient bedside care;
