Course Summary

Course Description


The health care field in general and the nursing profession in particular are undergoing rapid transition. Nurses today are often called upon to be generalists, and as such must be able to offer care to clients across the lifespan. Today's nurses serve as case managers, lead patient care teams, provide and coordinate care, and are moving into key supervisory and management positions. As a direct result of this increased responsibility, hospitals, visiting nurse services, and other health care settings prefer or even require nurses to have a bachelor's degree in nursing. Cleveland State University's answers this need by providing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program that is community-based and equips students with the necessary skills to perform their new role in today's reordered and restructured health care system or to pursue graduate education in nursing or another field. Three program options are available: a traditional four-year or basic BSN program; an RN to BSN track for practicing Registered Nurses; and an accelerated track for students who already hold a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing field, have completed prerequisite courses, and can attend school full-time.
