Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
La Salle’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program prepares its graduates to qualify for the National Council Licensure Examination (state board nursing examination) to become registered professional nurses and to practice as members of the nursing profession. The traditional, day program is a full-time course of study leading to the BSN degree. Students must have earned 34 credits in a prescribed curriculum composed of core and support courses prior to taking nursing major courses in the sophomore level. The 16 nursing courses are taught during the fall and spring sessions. Didactic portions of the courses are taught during the day and clinical experiences are planned for daytime as well as evening hours.
La Salle’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences is innovative, evidence-based, experiential, and interprofessional. Graduates become culturally and clinically competent members of their profession via state-of-the-art simulation labs, experienced and dedicated faculty, and clinical experiences including our Neighborhood Nursing Center, a nurse-managed public health facility and large teaching hospital facilities in the Philadelphia area. Clinical experiences start in the sophomore year.
