100 Credits | Main Campus
Our students focus initially on liberal arts courses that provide a framework for their chosen major in nursing.
Trinity ‘s pre-licensure B.S.N. program combines coursework and ample opportunities to experience the rewards of nursing in clinical settings.
You will gain the skills and training needed to become a valued professional in this growing career field. Trinity’s B.S.N. coursework is complete preparation to take the NCLEX exam, required to become a professional registered nurse. More than 80% of Trinity nursing students pass the NCLEX on their first attempt.
You will first complete liberal arts courses and prerequisites, take the TEAS exam, then apply to begin your nursing courses and complete your degree.
What You’ll Learn
Trinity prepares professional nurses at the undergraduate level to practice from an ethical, holistic, caring framework in the delivery of safe, competent and quality care. Nursing is committed to fostering an environment for learning which respects, nurtures, and celebrates social justice and cultural diversity among students, faculty, and staff. Trinity provides the local community and the larger global society with graduates who will be able to help alleviate nursing workforce shortages especially from underrepresented minority groups in the health care profession. In turn, graduates will help meet the health care needs of underrepresented, vulnerable populations in diverse communities.
