What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Science in nursing program combines the unique resources of the UT campus with health care agencies in a manner that enables both faculty and students to participate fully in all facets of the health care delivery system.

Facilities at the College of Nursing include a human patient simulator, a clinical practice laboratory, and technology-enhanced classrooms. Clinical instruction is offered for students in major hospitals, community clinics, health departments, and schools in the region.

The baccalaureate nursing curriculum is guided by the following assumptions:

Persons and their health and well-being are the focus of nursing.

Nursing is a caring practice profession, an art, and a scientific discipline.

Persons are influenced by a complex environment (both internal and external) that affects their health and well-being.

A goal for nursing is to modify environmental factors to promote, maintain and restore health.

The curriculum integrates the themes of holism, diversity, and caring and emphasizes critical thinking, communication and leadership, and management principles and skills.

A broad base of general education, a thorough study of human behaviour; an emphasis on health maintenance, promotion, and restoration; and a strong family and community orientation are all essential components of baccalaureate nursing education.

Maintaining a high-quality relevant program responsive to the increasing complexity of health care delivery, the changing health needs of society, and the changing and expanding role of the nurse enables graduates of the program to:

assume beginning leadership positions in a variety of settings

work collaboratively with other health professionals

function as socially conscious and contributing citizens

pursue advanced education on either a formal or informal basis
