The national demand for nurses in all areas is surpassing the number of professionals available. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that by the year 2018, there will be a need for 581,500 more nurses in the workforce than will be available.
The St. Ambrose Nursing Department is pleased to offer undergraduate programs of study for a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) and a bachelor of nursing (BN). Through the ACCEL program, RNs may earn their BSN to meet the professional standards for advancement in their institution or the hiring qualifications required in more independent practice settings.
Our program is for high school graduates with or without college transfer credits who want to earn a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree.
St. Ambrose's RN-BSN program, available through ACCEL, provides academic preparation to currently licensed registered nurses who want to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
A bachelor of nursing program has been designed for students who already have a bachelor degree and wish to return to school for nursing.
The Department of Nursing is committed to program excellence, service to the community, and development of a professional nurse with an appropriate balance of caring, ethical sensitivity, and critical thinking.
