The Pre-Licensure BSN program option is a state-wide traditional program that prepares graduates for RN licensure and professional practice. This 24 month option is comprised of theory (on-site/classroom), laboratory (skills/simulation), and clinical components, and is offered in an alternate format for adults. Nursing courses are delivered both online and in a blended format for greater flexibility.
The general education and biological science curriculum, grounded in biblical truth, is intended to provide a broad based knowledge of the arts and sciences required for students to understand the complex world of healthcare and to be prepared for success in the nursing major courses. As is consistent with the University’s mission, there is an emphasis on spiritual formation leading to the integration of learning, faith, and practice as students provide wholistic compassionate care.
The degree emphasizes professionalism, moral leadership, evidence based nursing practice, technology management, and interprofessional communication within healthcare delivery. Furthermore, competency, character, and calling are fostered in an effort to prepare nurses to practice nursing as ministry and thus to serve others as if serving the Lord. CCU challenges students to become exceptionally competent nurse leaders who impact their world and transform healthcare through the uniqueness of Christ-inspired practice.
