Proposed Nursing BSN

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Randolph-Macon College has formally submitted its application to establish a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program to the Virginia Board of Nursing.  The nursing program application is now pending Board of Nursing approval. This step is critical towards the formation of this new program, set to begin in fall 2019. The proposed new nursing major and BSN degree will be an outstanding complement to the college’s academic offerings.

The proposed BSN program will integrate the college’s liberal arts tradition as it prepares students to work as collaborative members of interdisciplinary healthcare teams.

Nursing students will develop essential skills as they gain a deep knowledge of the sciences. At Randolph-Macon, students are provided with opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom to learn while developing and refining critical thinking skills, problem solving abilities, and excellent communication skills.  These are the hallmarks of a Randolph-Macon education, and will be a key component of the BSN program.

The proposed Randolph-Macon BSN curriculum is based on The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice and will prepare graduates to obtain licensure as Registered Nurses and practice as generalist nurses. Students in the program will receive close, personal attention from experienced faculty with clinical expertise in a variety of nursing specialties.
