Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing prepares men and women from culturally and ethnically diverse communities for a career as professional nurses. Graduates function as providers, managers, and leaders of direct and indirect comprehensive care in a variety of healthcare settings. BSN graduates demonstrate the knowledge, proficiency and cultural competence of an educated person including the ability to synthesize general and professional education.

Graduates function as collaborative members within the discipline of nursing and the interdisciplinary health care team and critique research findings for evidence-based practice and are aware of current trends and issues facing nursing. Expanded knowledge of communication, culture, leadership, management, critical thinking, therapeutic nursing and system interventions, legal-ethical and teaching-learning principles, standardized languages and computer information are integrated into nursing practice. The BSN program further reinforces accountability for lifelong learning and professional career development.
