Bachelor of Science in Nursing (4-year)
The new traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is innovative in
its approach to nursing education. Unlike many nursing programs, students in Clarion's
BSN program will participate in nursing courses and be introduced to research and
critical thinking beginning in the first semester. Several high-impact educational
practices such as clinical experiences, nursing courses, collaborative assignments,
undergraduate research and a capstone project are incorporated throughout the curriculum.
The program utilizes a highly successful clinical immersion model in which several instructional methods are used to support lectures and discussions. Simulation laboratories, volunteer experiences in health care agencies, and creative, hands-on experiences such as live standardized patient labs and research studies are in place throughout the freshman through junior years as components of clinical learning to support senior-level clinical preparation.
