nursingThe goal of the Bachelor of Science degree in nursing program is to provide opportunities for qualified students to acquire the knowledge necessary to provide nursing care, which promotes adaptation of the person, family, and community. This knowledge is acquired within a liberal arts experience, which emphasizes honesty, integrity, civility, and a strong sense of personal responsibility. Professional preparation as a nurse includes promotion of lifelong learning, social responsibility, and service.

CMU's Nursing program offers a rigorous academic and clinical experience that qualifies the successful student to take the NCLEX-RN exam. It is also fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and fully accredited by The Commission for Collegiate Nursing Education.
