Why Major in Nursing?

The Traditional Pre-Licensure Program at Eastern University offers the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and prepares graduates who can safely provide professional holistic nursing care for patients and are generalists in varied clinical practice settings. BSN students will learn to incorporate Christian values and ethics into all areas of nursing, in order to know how to meet the needs of their future patients.

BSN students will gain hands-on experience in Eastern’s on-campus Nursing Resource & Simulation Lab and off-campus clinical agencies. Students will work with award-winning faculty and staff, who are dedicated to guiding them through their nursing education. In higher-level courses, students will have the opportunity to focus on specific areas of study, including Pediatric Nursing, Holistic Family Nursing and Maternal Child Nursing.

“The nursing program at Eastern helps you understand the disease process, but most importantly helps you see the patient and family as whole beings: body, heart and soul. Everything I learned at Eastern I still use in my practice today.”

Marissa Burns, BSN '17
