The nursing program at Elms College provides the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to become a successful, professional nurse. Academic excellence makes a difference in the education of nurses. Thus, our baccalaureate nursing curriculum integrates a strong liberal arts and sciences curriculum with the nursing specialization. The nursing courses emphasize nationally recognized competencies for nurses and health professionals.
Our nursing faculty delivers the curriculum using contemporary teaching methods. These include classroom instruction, clinical learning experiences and state-of-the-art simulation for skill and competency development that provides real world understanding.
Ultimately, through rigorous coursework coupled with ample clinical practice, our nursing students become knowledgeable, innovative professional nurse leaders equipped with excellent education and training that will prepare them to drive change in healthcare and make important contributions to safety and quality.
Preparation for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is emphasized throughout the curriculum.
