Why Major in Nursing?

Eastern University's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) provides exceptional academics, personalized faculty attention, and dynamic clinical experiences to pre-licensure students. Graduates are equipped to safely provide professional nursing care in varied clinical practice settings.

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. Our faith-based community enriches student learning as inspiring Christian values and ethics are incorporated into the program.

“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.”
