Program Description

Nursing is the art and science of care for individuals, families and communities in a variety of settings. The discipline of nursing integrates the life, social and behavioral sciences with general education, nursing theory and clinical courses to produce a graduate capable of functioning autonomously as a member of a multidisciplinary team, managing and coordinating personnel, services, resources and data in addition to providing patient care.

The CSUCI graduate nurse seeks solutions to societal health needs and problems, understanding demographics and disparities in healthcare, ethical concerns and global perspectives in the practice of professional nursing at the generalist level. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing features community, public health, leadership and management clinical experiences. The curriculum and experiences prepare graduates for evidence-based practice in public health, home health, extended care, case management, occupational health, nursing management, staff development, and nursing education and will provide preparation for graduate nursing education.
