There are two different and separate tracks to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. This is the Pre-Licensure BSN track designed for students who hold no professional nursing degree or license and desire to become a professional registered nurse (RN).
The second BSN track is for registered nurses (RNs) who have an Associate degree and currently hold a license to practice. This track is fully online and developed for the working nurse who desires to continue their educational career. Information for this track is located under Programs of Study>Nursing>Online Bachelor of Science, Nursing (RN to BSN - Online)
Equipping students to serve Christ and the world as competent professional nurses through Spirit-empowered ethical practice informed by critical thinking, life-long learning, and leadership.
The vision of the Nursing Program, also developed to reflect the vision of the University, is described below:
The Southeastern University Nursing Program will offer a professional education program that prepares students to provide excellent nursing care to individuals, families, and communities through the integration of faith, learning, and service.
Faculty will provide a Christ-centered, student-focused learning community that encourages students to grow in their role as professional nurses.
Students will gain an educational foundation that allows them to provide safe, evidence-based, and culturally competent care for all patients, with special emphasis on the underserved. They will use clinical judgment to integrate evolving technology and research findings into caring interventions that improve patients’ health and support the sick and dying, their families, and communities.
Students will commit to life-long learning, rigorous scholarship, leadership, and collaborative interprofessional practice as a means of serving their communities.
Southeastern University’s College of Natural and Health Sciences awards the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Upon completion of the nursing program, students meet the educational qualifications of the Florida Board of Nursing (FBON) for applying for the NCLEX-RN (national) licensure exam in the state of their choice. Students who pass this examination will then be licensed to practice professional nursing as a registered nurse (RN) by the particular state wherein they selected to take the examination
