Baccalaureate Degree

A program leading to a baccalaureate degree in nursing is generally four (4) years in length and is offered by a college or university which provides baccalaureate and/or higher degree education. The nursing curriculum includes classroom and clinical experiences for patients across the lifespan in hospital and community/public settings. The program prepares a minimal competent, independent nursing practitioner for these settings.
