Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree (BSN)
The nursing program at Crown College complements the college’s commitment to academic excellence by preparing highly qualified nursing professionals who practice Christian compassion and caring in a variety of global health care environments. Students who graduate with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) from Crown College are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) for registered nurses.
Program curriculum and teaching methodologies are structured within a 4-year education plan to meet the requirements for entry level practice. A liberal education based on the sciences and the arts as well as Christian studies establishes groundwork for students. They gain content needed for practice, and develop appreciation of the views and values of others. Students within our program understand the value of community. There is a shared faith and focus on Christ that calls for an openness and understanding of peoples of all faiths, including those who do not express a faith. It leads to a place where the mind, body, spirit, and emotions of the individual can be cared for holistically.
Coursework is structured to provide students with diverse opportunities to participate in off-campus clinical settings such as hospitals, clinics and public health agencies. In addition, the Crown College Nursing Intervention Lab provides students with simulated clinical practice using state-of- the- art technology that gives students the chance to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for professional practice. The program also integrates web-based programing across the curriculum to enhance real-world experiences for students.
Crown College nursing graduates rank high in passing the NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Examination), a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States. In 2016, 86.67% of Crown’s graduating class passed the NCLEX-RN as first-time testers, making them highly competitive for new graduate positions within weeks of obtaining their BSN degree.
