Nursing

Nurses are often at the top of national surveys as the most trusted of professionals.  As patient care evolves and becomes more complex, higher educational levels are needed to prepare nurses for leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and specialized knowledge in every area of nursing.  Midland University’s Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing prepares students both for entry into this dynamic and exciting career, and for continued success and advancement. 

Students at Midland University can expect to receive a balanced blend of liberal arts courses designed to enhance the science and clinical practicum courses of the nursing program.  Social studies courses help the student recognize and appreciate diversity in the patient population, ethics courses provide a platform for development of strong decision making skills based on Christian principles, and arts and other elective courses complete the “whole person” picture.

Clinical training begins in the sophomore year and throughout the entire program, faculty coaches work with students using the best technological tools available to prepare nursing graduates to successfully complete the NCLEX nursing licensure exam. 

Traditional BSN

At Midland, students seeking a traditional BSN complete their program with a focus on patient centered care in a variety of health care settings. The curriculum balances general and professional education with course options in the humanities, the physical and life sciences and social and behavioral sciences. Nursing courses prepare the graduate for professional practice in a variety of health care settings, provide a foundation for graduate study in nursing, and promote life-long learning and growth toward maturity as individuals, professionals and citizens.
