B.S.N. Nursing Degree Overview
The mission of the Crown College Department of Nursing is to provide a strong, biblically based nursing education for the purpose of preparing Christian men and women for service to communities, healthcare systems, the church-at-large, and the world.
The Nursing B.S.N. curriculum includes a Christian Studies core as well as a background in science and the humanities. Clinical nursing experiences are provided with the cooperation of a variety of hospitals and agencies throughout the area. In keeping with the emphasis on missionary nursing, students will participate in a cross-cultural nursing experience. Graduates of the program will be eligible to apply to take the national licensure examination (NCLEX).
This program offers students exceptional fl exibility in the types of courses they can take so that students can tailor a program to meet their specifi c needs. The strong science background also allows students to prepare for careers in other health related areas such as physical therapy, athletic training, and kinesiology.
Courses in the B.S.N. Nursing degree program require students to spend substantial time in off-campus clinical settings such as hospitals, clinics, and public health agencies. Crown has partnered with Ridgeview Hospital in Waconia, MN, as well as area hospitals in Buffalo, Shakopee, and Hutchinson. Crown’s relationships with these hospitals provide great connections for nursing students once they graduate.
The field of nursing is technologically complex. Crown’s state-of-the-art nursing lab gives students the chance to sharpen their skills with the most updated tools prior to heading into the field. Through online assignments and discussions, nursing students will learn to collaborate and have increased access to learning resources.
