The Department of Nursing offers two programs that lead to a baccalaureate degree in nursing, a four year pre-licensure program, and a hybrid post-licensure RN to BSN program.  The Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Department is an autonomous department, which operates within the Nursing Department and provides continuing education for registered nurses.
