What We Offer
In response to the Institute of Medicine’s recommendation - and assessment of the nursing workforce in New Hampshire - Keene State College developed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, based on the Nurse of the Future Core Competencies, admitting the first class in 2012.
The Nursing Program offers two options: a Pre-Licensure option and an RN Completion option. Pre-licensure students are undergraduates who do not have an RN license.
RN Completion students are those who hold an associate’s degree in nursing from a community college and a license to practice as a registered nurse.
The integrated curriculum is designed to provide meaningful learning experiences for Pre-Licensure students and RN Completion students and to ensure the graduates possess the knowledge, skill, and attitude reflecting the standards of the discipline of nursing.
I invite you to explore the nursing curriculum, faculty profiles and program information available on-line and to contact me if you have any questions.
Once again, I welcome you to the Nursing Program and I wish you great success as you become the Nurse of the Future!
