About Our Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree in Nursing

The major in professional nursing leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in nursing and concentrates on nursing theory, evidence-based practice, policy, management, family, and community health.

This interdisciplinary program takes a systems approach to the problems, principles and practices of today’s complex healthcare system, incorporating conceptual and theoretical knowledge with an understanding of the complex cultural environment. Cohorts of 20-25 nurses meet once a week for four hours. New cohorts start in the Fall and Spring and are offered in both the daytime and evening. We offer two curriculum tracks tailored to both new to practice and experienced nurses.

Study in this program exposes you to the knowledge and skills necessary for you to:

  • Understand the changing nurse roles in community-based environments and institutional settings with the advent of managed care and integrated delivery systems.
  • Apply skills and theories in the classroom and through your evidence-based research project
  • Evaluate issues and concepts central to the practice of professional nursing through the perspectives of historical, cultural, biblical, and ethical standards.

If you have completed an accredited nursing diploma or associate’s degree program and have an active RN license, you may qualify to enroll. EMU at Lancaster’s RN to Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing program is fully accredited, reasonably priced and accelerated.
