Scholarships up to USD 25,000 for International Students

Our B.S.N. program is designed to address the multiple roles of the professional nurse within the health care system during the 21st century. The development of our innovative curriculum was based on the belief that a strong background in the liberal arts and sciences is necessary to prepare nurses to manage the complexities inherent in the current health care system, and to provide safe, quality care to individuals and populations that represent diverse backgrounds.
All our nursing students are exposed to a variety of clinical experiences and log over 1,000 hours in a variety of patient care, simulation, and laboratory practice settings. Each individual clinical group is comprised of no more than 8 students.
All students are placed in similar types of quality clinical practice settings and benefit from two full rotations in community health practice settings. Rotations include the following:
home health care
After four years of taking nursing classes in tandem with Moravian University's LinC curriculum, you'll engage in a hands-on clinically relevant nursing research project and participate in a one-on-one precepted internship experience with a registered nurse in an acute-care hospital setting.
Upon successful completion of the program of study, it is expected that the graduate will:
Synthesize knowledge from the humanities, sciences, and nursing theory as a basis for making decisions in the practice of nursing.
Provide holistic nursing care that contributes to safe and quality outcomes among individuals, families, and communities, accessing healthcare technologies as appropriate.
Collaborate with other healthcare team members to foster optimal health of individuals, families, and communities.
