Our Liberal Arts Foundations courses support holistic student development, while core courses in science, art, philosophy, language, religion, and society and culture encourage you to think biblically, critically, and ethically about the world. Nursing courses equip you to work collaboratively for the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health. Throughout the program, we also focus on covenantal caring, equity, quality of life, plurality, and global engagement.
OUR SCHOOL OF NURSING OFFERS THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS:

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM IN NURSING (BSN)
Nursing courses are sequential, which means first-year nursing and science courses must be successfully completed before you progress to courses designated for subsequent years. Through classroom, lab, and clinical instruction, you will be prepared in subjects ranging from pharmacology to nursing research, health assessment to leadership theories, medical and surgical nursing to mental health, and maternity and paediatrics to elder care.
“In my nursing studies at TWU, I learned how to assess and meet the physical needs of the clients I care for. But I also learned the importance of addressing spiritual needs and the human need for hope.”
GRACE WILSON, 2012
