Undergraduate Nursing Programs

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

This program usually takes four years to complete and will lead to a BSN degree. The goal of this program is to produce graduates that have fully mastered these four areas: culture, care, information management and godly living.

Students will have to finish 74 semester hours in major requirements, as well as 59 semester hours in general education requirements.

Cross-Cultural Nursing

This program exists for students who want to work on mission fields with cross-cultural people in the U.S. and abroad. Students will have to finish at least 16 extra credit hours for it, though.

Graduate Nursing Programs

Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)

This program provides professional, advanced and in-depth practice study that builds on BSN foundations.

Students will have to finish 14 semester hours in core courses, 9 hours in advanced practice core courses, 4 hours in nursing capstone experience, as well as other necessary nursing courses as stated by the student’s chosen area of focus. The available areas of focus include Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Global health Ministries (GHM).

The MSN program can usually be completed in two years if a full-time study plan is followed. However, there are also part-time study plans available for those who need them.

Nursing Camp

At Nursing Camp, students will get superior instruction in top-notch nursing facilities by a  great nursing faculty. The best part is that this camp focuses on how important spirituality actually is in the field of nursing.

The Nursing Camp includes a general introduction to Christian nursing philosophies, practical experience with various basic skills in nursing, one-on-one interactions with the faculty and other Cedarville students, an overview of various nursing career opportunities, as well as fellowship and fun.
