JBU Nursing Program
- Highly qualified faculty members teach pre-nursing and nursing courses from a holistic Christian world view perspective.
- Small class sizes allow students to receive individualized instruction and mentoring.
- A newly constructed nursing building equipped with a state-of-the-art simulation lab will supplement clinical experiences obtained at area hospitals, medical clinics, nursing homes, home health organizations, public schools, and other agencies.
- Students enroll in at least two nursing courses during their first two years to expose them early on to the nursing profession. In many other BSN programs, students don’t take any nursing courses until their junior year.
- Credentialing as a certified nurse’s assistant (CNA) in the sophomore year opens doors to job opportunities during the school year and summer.
- Interdisciplinary collaboration and service learning opportunities in the community prepare students to be caring, compassionate nurses as part of a healthcare team.
- Faculty-supervised medical mission trips during the summer to areas of the world with profound medical need provide life-changing experiences while fulfilling degree requirements.
- A capstone nursing course during the senior year prepares students to pass the NCLEX exam for obtaining certification as a registered nurse.
- Obtaining secondary accreditation of the BSN program through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) is a high priority for JBU.
