Nursing (BSN)

Welcome to Wingate University's Bachelor of Science in Nursing program website! The mission of our four year BSN program is to provide students with information and nursing care opportunities for the development and practice of the elements of Faith, Knowledge and Service that are the supporting principles of Wingate University. The Department of Nursing offers a scholarly, science-based program that values reasoning, caring and community involvement. The BSN program strives to produce well-prepared, generalist nurses who are able to make broad-based decisions in order to give good, entry level nursing care to a diversity of individuals, families and communities, and who become leaders within their nursing settings.
