The Department of Nursing offers students an array of potential careers depending upon their program of study.  Students graduating from the Traditional and Accelerated Option baccalaureate nursing program are prepared as nurse generalists in hospitals and other health care agencies.  All baccalaureate graduates, including those completing the RN-BS Option are prepared to pursue graduate education.  Master’s degree graduates meet the qualifications to seek certification as Clinical Nurse Specialists or Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners.  Graduates of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program are clinical practitioners with the ability to focus on system and population based health needs, while the PhD graduate focuses on cancer care, health policy and health disparities.
