Nursing (B.S.) (At LHU Clearfield Campus)
The BSN program provides upper division opportunities facilitating mobility of graduates from Associate Degree and Diploma programs, allowing them the opportunity to enhance their education and career options. The primary goal is to function in a variety of settings: providing care of the sick in and across environments; participating in, planning, implementing and evaluating activities and programs to promote health; and facilitating population-based health care.
The program is designed to build on the student's knowledge and experience as a registered nurse, enhancing skills in critical thinking, case management, and leadership roles.
RN-to-BSN students in nursing must have proof of graduation from a NLNAC accredited nursing program and proof of current registered nurse licensure. Students may choose to participate in a full-time or part-time curriculum.
The LHU RN-to-BSN Program has Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing approval and the program is accredited by ACEN (Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc.) formerly NLNAC (National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc.).
