The School of Nursing offers a post-licensure RNBSN Program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.). The undergraduate program prepares men and women for professional nursing practice and provides a foundation for advanced study in nursing.
The School of Nursing post-licensure RNBSN Program is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (http://www.ncahigherlearningcommission.org/) and Indiana Wesleyan University is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The program is also accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) (202-887-6791). Memberships include the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
Throughout the post-licensure RNBSN Program, the nurse is a purposeful, self-directed individual who assumes responsibility and accountability to God, society, self, and clients who, made in the image of God, have intrinsic worth and value. Modeling the example of Jesus Christ, nurses are to protect and promote health, especially for people lacking access to health care, through the just allocation of health resources and services throughout the world.
The post-licensure RNBSN Program is planned within the philosophy and conceptual framework of the baccalaureate program. (Adult learners want to take charge of their own learning and can be mutually responsible for the education process in partnership with faculty.) Small project teams and other strategies appropriate for adult education contribute to mastery of learning outcomes.
The curriculum will be completed in the order established by Indiana Wesleyan University. Indiana Wesleyan University reserves the right to modify the curriculum as necessary.
The same courses offered in the classroom setting are also offered via the Internet. Details are available at Online-Delivery.
