Program Description

student nursing resizedThe Department of Nursing in the Division of Health-Related programs at Pfeiffer University offers an undergraduate program leading to the bachelor of science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The pre-licensure BSN program is open to qualified high school graduates and college students who wish to pursue a nursing major. The program, which can be completed in four years, consists of classroom and clinical experiences designed to prepare students to provide patient-centered care to a variety of patients across the lifespan and across diverse populations.

A bachelor's degree with a major in nursing at Pfeiffer University requires a total of 125 semester credit hours of study. Lower division course work is composed of 70 credit hours that include liberal arts and nursing prerequisites. The remaining 55 credit hours are taken in the junior and senior years in the nursing major and are completed within the Department of Nursing. Graduates are awarded a bachelor of science in Nursing degree and are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), which is required for practice as a registered nurse. Graduates are prepared to provide care in and across all environments as a generalist nurse.

Pfeiffer University's nursing curriculum is based on the caring theoretical perspective. The concept of caring will direct teaching approaches, student learning activities, teacher-student interactions and the climate of the program.

Pfeiffer University nursing students benefit from both the applied sciences and a core curriculum based in the liberal arts.
