Traditional Nursing B.S. Program

The WSoN Difference

At the Wegmans School of Nursing (WSoN), you will grow as a person and as a professional, developing aptitude in critical thinking, ethical decision making, establishing and maintaining therapeutic relationships, providing and coordinating care, cultural sensitivity, and self-appraisal.

As a nursing student, you will also have numerous opportunities for immersive, experiential learning in the community and abroad.

Nursing B.S. Curriculum

Fisher's Nursing curriculum at the Wegmans School of Nursing is grounded in both the knowledge of the discipline of nursing and the science of evidence-based practice.

During the first two years of the undergraduate Nursing curriculum, you will complete College Core and prerequisite liberal arts and science courses, and participate in non-credit nursing seminars.

After being admitted to the Nursing program in your junior year, you'll engage in the study/practice of nursing theory and evidence-based clinical coursework in the specialties of nursing care including community, adult/older adult, child, psychiatric, and women's health.

The program culminates in a precepted clinical role transition course in the last semester of your senior year.

After Graduation

Nurses are in high demand. After graduation, you will be equipped for an entry-level generalist practice nursing role in any of the numerous local, national, and international health care opportunities available.

You will be prepared to engage in nursing practice that is responsible, accountable, safe, ethical, holistic, technologically advanced, scholarly, therapeutic, cost-effective, culturally sensitive, collaborative, innovative, and outcome-oriented.
