Bachelor of Science in Nursing

The AUA Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) bridging program is designed for nurses who have a diploma in nursing or midwifery and seek to advance into higher education. The BSN program requires the completion of 75 credits at AUA and typically takes up to 3 years. 

The program prepares nurses to promote health and deliver nursing care to diverse patient populations across the lifespan and across the four spheres of care: (1) disease prevention and health promotion, (2) chronic disease care, (3) regenerative or restorative care, and (4) palliative or supportive care. AUA prepares nurses who are not only well-grounded but also well-rounded individuals, who are able to think critically and creatively, to learn on their own, to understand different kinds of thinking, to work in teams, and to deal with people from different cultures and disciplines. The program provides rich and varied opportunities for practice experiences that focus on person-centered care of the individual, family, and community.
