Program description

B.S. in Nursing

The Husson University/Eastern Maine Medical Center Nursing Program brings together two institutions that share a commitment to excellence in teaching and to the relevance of practical experience. Graduates of the program are prepared to enter a wide variety of practice settings as beginning professional nurses. Potential settings for practice include all areas of hospital nursing, ranging from critical care to newborn nursery, as well as community health, clinic, psychiatric, and long term care settings. Baccalaureate degree graduates also are prepared to pursue specialized nursing study at the master’s degree level.

The program provides a strong base in the arts and sciences, both as a theoretical foundation for nursing practice and as a component of a well-rounded education. Clinical experience in nursing is integrated throughout the program of study. The nursing faculty are proficient in their theoretical knowledge and active in their respective clinical areas, providing students with role models for excellence in patient care.

A state-of-the art learning resource laboratory located on the University campus allows students to have extensive practice in developing and refining critical-thinking and psychomotor skills. High-fidelity and hybrid simulation opportunities provide valuable active-learning in a safe practice environment for all students throughout the program. The goal of all learning experiences is to prepare professional nurses who, upon graduation, are theoretically knowledgeable, clinically competent, and compassionate care providers.

Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on building upon the student’s past learning experience. In keeping with overall University policies, transfer, CLEP and proficiency examination options are available to students who have completed appropriate educational experiences prior to entering the program. Part-time alternatives for working students who wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree are available.

Admission requirements

First-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
