Program Goals

BSN program goals were developed by faculty and approved at a meeting of the nursing faculty in June 2016. This statement was written to communicate the primary reasons we exist as a nursing program on the Hesston College campus.

  1. Offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for pre-licensure students seeking to become Registered Nurses and for Registered Nurses (RNs) who desire to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).
  2. Provide nursing education within a Christ-centered, supportive environment that facilitates the integration of thought, life, and faith, and prepares graduates to serve others through the nursing profession.
  3. Prepare graduates with the essential nursing competencies and leadership skills that equip them to promote positive outcomes in healthcare and community settings and/or pursue post-baccalaureate education.
  4. Benefit the healthcare community by developing nursing professionals who excel in the delivery of quality nursing care, leadership, and service.
