Bachelor of Science in Nursing University of Maine



Course info


Preparing nurses for the increasingly diverse and global health care system, where change is rapid and constant, is a challenge recognized and embraced by the University of Maine School of Nursing. Nurses educated for the 21st century must be prepared for continued change, expanded roles, a variety of health care settings, and use of technology. The School of Nursing undergraduate curriculum includes:

  • Liberal arts courses, taken during the first two years, which are the foundation for developing critical thinking, decision-making ability, an appreciation for the individual, and developing respect for diversity of cultures.
  • Physical and social sciences which provide the foundation for understanding human health.
  • Nursing courses which provide the theoretical and scientific under pinnings of promotion, maintenance and restoration of health across the life span.
  • Clinical experiences in acute-care facilities including: Eastern Maine Medical Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Dorothea Dix Psychiatric Center, Acadia Hospital, as well as other hospitals around the State including rural community hospitals.
  • Community based experiences, offered through affiliations with numerous local and rural community health agencies, schools, specialty clinics such as pediatric and maternal health, and occupational health settings. Student community-based leadership projects may include such diverse areas as CPR classes for teachers, health resources for Veterans and the homeless population, disaster preparedness for children and families, and health teaching in correctional facilities.
