Follow these Steps to Prepare Yourself:
The nursing program is designed to provide individuals with a broad educational background, which builds upon biblical knowledge, liberal arts, and behavioral and social sciences as well as nursing. The purpose of the Liberty University School of Nursing Undergraduate program is to prepare baccalaureate level nurses who are committed to Christian ethical standards and view nursing as a ministry of caring based on the Benner theoretical framework. The nursing curriculum is built upon a foundation from the arts, sciences, and the Bible, and focuses on the use of the nursing process to guide the acquisition of nursing knowledge, the development of strong clinical skills and a commitment to a sound work ethic.
The School of Nursing offers a four-year curriculum designed to lead to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree. The curriculum consists of 131 credits of which 54 credits are general education requirements, 16 are natural science support courses, and 61 credits are nursing courses. Nursing courses are distributed throughout the four years with the concentration at the junior and senior levels.
For students who already have a degree or have completed 2 years of college-level work (55 transferable credits to the Nursing Degree Completion Plan), the School of Nursing offers a sophomore summer accelerated program. Forty students are selected for this summer program, and the 4 sophomore level nursing classes are taught as intensives over an 8-week time frame. Students who are successful in these classes will enter into the Junior year in the Fall semester. Students can also apply to take Senior Nursing classes as intensive the summer between junior and senior year. Those students will finish senior year in the fall and graduate in December.
Students also have an option to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree with a Global Studies Cognate. Through this concentration, students will take courses such as Cultural Anthropology, Global Health Nursing Field, and Cross-Cultural Nursing to help prepare them for nursing in a mission-related field.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing, at Liberty University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
This is in addition to Liberty University’s regional accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
