Bachelor of Science in Nursing
For specific course and program requirements, please consult the current undergraduate catalog.
The Bachelor of Science Program in Nursing is designed to blend the resources of a public university and a regional medical center, leading to a program that is both academically and clinically strong. This training program is jointly sponsored by Mansfield University and Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital. Students who are not yet registered nurses spend their first two years at Mansfield University completing general education and nursing courses. The remainder of the program consists of intensive classroom, laboratory, and clinical coursework at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pennsylvania. Students also have the opportunity to learn in community settings such as nursing homes, elementary and secondary schools, nursery schools, outpatient clinics, and public health agencies.
Completion of the Nursing Program prepares students with the essential skills necessary to develop intellectual curiosity and clinical judgement. These, paired with communication and therapeutic nursing skills, provide the basis for the development of a successful and professional nursing practitioner. This program prepares individuals for career opportunities in acute, chronic, and community settings in addition for continued education at the graduate level.
This program provides a strong background in nursing as well as the liberal arts and sciences.
