Undergraduate Nursing Programs
Through the study of theory, research and practice, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) student prepares to provide health care to people across the lifespan with awareness of the exigencies of gender, culture and ethnicity. Theoretical, clinical, and experiential learning experiences prepare the student to provide care for the acutely and chronically ill and also to instruct clients in health promotion and disease and injury prevention. BSN students also develop administrative skills necessary to manage the healthcare needs of clients in a variety of settings. For today’s professional nurse, a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing is essential.
The general education component of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, which includes English, humanities, social science, global studies, fine arts, health and well-being, finance and quantitative literacy, natural sciences, and technology provides the student with an academic background promoting development of a well-rounded individual. Students are challenged to develop high level analytical and critical thinking skills. Upon completion of the Nursing program and School of Nursing (SON) General Education requirements, the University of Michigan-Flint awards the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
