Our students have the option to pick a specific education track that is right for them. We offer the traditional BSN face to face course, LPN to BSN students, and the online LPN-BSN track. In addition we offer an online Master of Science in Nursing, focus, family practitioner.

Our students learn from the best, and graduates are work-ready for all healthcare environments. Students learn critical thinking skills in an academic and clinical setting that allows them to transition to the real world of nursing. Students receive an excellent education in small classroom sizes. Our students enjoy an active learning classroom and simulation experiences that promote hands-on learning in a safe environment to care for diverse patients in a variety of clinical settings. 

Our close proximity to different hospitals around the area means you will have more opportunities to learn as a nursing student.
