Nursing with a Christian Purpose
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N) is a highly respected degree with an ever-growing national demand. Olivet nursing students prepare for careers with an aim to: serve God and humanity in diverse roles and settings, integrate faith and lifelong learning as they investigate concepts inherent in personal, professional and spiritual growth, and demonstrate the development of leadership skills and understanding of the dynamic health care environment. In an effort to stimulate constructive change, students apply ethical, moral, spiritual and professional concepts into their daily nursing practice. Our BSN program meets the educational requirements leading to professional licensure by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) through the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX).
Students, employers and society can be confident that Olivet’s accredited nursing program meets the quality standards of the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and Illinois Department of Professional Regulation. Coursework covers each essential of learning, as defined by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Olivet graduates enrolled in the traditional program consistently exceed the national average pass rate for the NCLEX-RN, the licensing exam for registered nurses.
