Are you passionate about alleviating suffering? Do you want to make a lasting difference in people’s lives?

A bachelor’s degree in Nursing is a career choice with a broad appeal. Nursing makes up one of the largest segments of the U.S. workforce, and the demand for nurses is rapidly increasing. Opportunities for nurses grow every day and there are many areas of employment available, from maternal-child care to surgical nursing. Because of this, nursing is one of the most viable degree options for a student to pursue. Plus, nurses are known for being wonderful support systems that make a lasting difference for doctors and patients alike.

Nursing students at MVNU learn through a range of clinical practice opportunities in a variety of healthcare organizations, in addition to rigorous classroom instruction from expert faculty.

MVNU’s 4 year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Following graduation, students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensure exam to become Registered Nurses.

  •  Outstanding facilities — Our state-of-the-art 32,000 square-foot Nursing Skills Lab, including three simulation-observation rooms, two high-fidelity human patient simulators, and two large skills laboratories, provides students with the high-end technology they need to learn about their field in minute detail.
  • Hands-on experience — Throughout your time in our program, you will participate in over 640 hours of clinicals. We are devoted to making sure you have ample experience that will allow you to enter into your career with ease and confidence in your abilities.

Check out the catalog for a complete list of the requirements, courses, and objectives for the Nursing program!

Hunter Hall, home of the MVNU Nursing Department, has three simulation rooms with lifelike and responsive mannequins, two large practice laboratories, and a state-of-the-art Clinical Learning Laboratory.

Recent MVNU-sponsored trips in which nursing students have participated have been to Israel, Jordan, Swaziland, Belize, Croatia, Hungary, and Italy.

All MVNU students are also invited to participate in our many other travel opportunities.

Ariel Foundation awards 5 scholarships to Nursing students each year; 2 to juniors and 3 to seniors.

MVNU also has many endowed scholarships available for students of a wide variety of backgrounds and majors.

With over 200 specialty areas in Nursing, it’s not difficult to find employment in your area of interest with this degree.
