The School of Nursing is one of the largest nursing programs in Minnesota, with access to hundreds of clinical sites, large and small, rural and urban, within hospitals and community centers. The School of Nursing programs respond to the health care needs of the region, especially underserved populations, which include rural communities and residents with mental health needs.
The undergraduate nursing program offers three tracks to complete a baccalaureate nursing major: Traditional Undergraduate, Post-Baccalaureate and RN to BS online. The undergraduate nursing program, which is approved as a licensure-preparing program by the Minnesota Board of Nursing, prepares students for entry-level professional nursing practice. This level of education is based on core knowledge and clinical competency applied through a unique blend of critical thinking, caring, communication and collaboration.
