Welcome to the Methodist University Nursing Department web page! I, along with the Nursing faculty and staff, are excited that you are considering, or have chosen, Methodist to begin or advance your career in the field of Nursing! Two pathways to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree are offered at Methodist; the Traditional BSN pre-licensure program and the fully online RN to BSN Completion program.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Methodist University was established in 2010 and graduated the first class of BSN students May 2014. Students in the traditional BSN pre-licensure program graduate with competencies in providing patient-centered care, working within interdisciplinary teams, employing evidence-based practice, applying quality improvement, utilizing informatics, and functioning in an environment of integrated processes within a global community. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) to become a licensed registered nurse.
Our online RN to BSN Completion program is designed for current associate degree or diploma prepared registered nurses who wish to advance their careers in the health care profession. Course offerings include a focus on health policy, evidence-based practice application, pathophysiology, public health nursing, and bedside care. Students will also be able to choose from one of three elective courses to pursue topics of interest such geriatrics, women’s health, and critical care. Classes are offered in a fully online format which offers flexibility and convenience for the working professional. You can complete the program to get your BSN in as little as one year.
BSN graduates can pursue graduate education in Nursing with our new online programs starting in the Fall. We are accepting applications for the Master of Science in Nursing program, in which graduate students will concentrate in Administrative Leadership. Also coming online is the graduate Certificate in Nursing Education program to help students transition to roles as nursing educators, and up to 9 s.h. from this program can be applied to the MSN program for students wishing to continue their education.
Please feel free to explore our web page and discover more about what Methodist University Nursing can help you achieve. We look forward to having you as a student!
