Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
The core of the UDM nursing programs is our undergraduate nursing curriculum. This program, strongly focused on nursing in the community, is founded on the sciences and the liberal arts, and strives to encourage critical thinking.
Its aim is to educate nursing practitioners competent to provide contemporary clinical care, make critical decisions within an ethical framework, communicate effectively, exercise leadership and management skills, and design and coordinate health promotion, risk reduction, and illness and disease management strategies for clients.
A unique feature of the McAuley School of Nursing's programs is the required cooperative education experience. The McAuley School also maintains numerous partnerships with community and health care agencies to provide a variety of clinical sites for students. The BSN program is full-time only.
