BSN Program

The Nebraska Wesleyan University BSN program offers a traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree combining clinical and foundational knowledge including liberal arts courses to receive a more comprehensive education.

Students will gain hands on experience with over 900 clinical hours completed upon graduation from the program. Students will further develop critical thinking, decision-making and communication skills through clinical and preceptorship experiences. Students will also train in a fully equipped skills lab. Access to a simulation lab will be included in the clinical coursework.

This program has small class sizes with experienced faculty in all specialty areas of nursing. A prep course is built into the curriculum to help students succeed on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).


A BSN degree will help you develop management, leadership, and communication skills, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills so you will be able to communicate your ideas effectively. Additionally, it will prepare you to assist individuals, groups, and communities to prevent disease and achieve optimum levels of wellness.

Career Opportunities

Generally, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. While 60 percent of nurses work in hospitals, BSNs also work in schools, doctor's offices, government agencies, nursing homes, and hospice centers. A bachelor's or higher degree is often necessary for securing nursing positions in today’s job market.
