What You’ll Learn
In the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at South College, you will build a strong academic foundation for your rewarding and enriching career in the medical field. As a nursing student, you will learn the fundamental skills required of a nurse generalist, including the basics of medical care, critical thinking, interpersonal skills, and technical competence required for taking national and state licensure exams.
Nursing is a challenging and fulfilling profession with consistently high job satisfaction ratings. As a nurse, you will be a key part of the healthcare team providing collaborative, interdisciplinary care, leading to better outcomes for patients. With classroom, laboratory, and clinical training from our experienced team of instructors, you can gain the knowledge and skills that are most important in delivering superior patient care.
The first two years of South College’s traditional BSN program consist of general education courses that provide the liberal arts framework for the more advanced portions of the program. In the upper division nursing courses, students undertake a rigorous schedule with about 20 hours of in-class time per week.
To deliver the highest-quality education, we use tools like case studies, presentations, Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) resources, and other creative teaching approaches. On earning your degree, you may choose to enter the healthcare industry immediately or pursue more advanced degrees and qualifications.
