5 Ways Our Undergraduate Nursing Program Stands Out from the Rest

The Undergraduate Nursing program consists of the most sought-after degree options at Clarkson College. Year after year, the program continues to evolve to meet the diverse needs of Nursing students and the growing expectations of health care institutions.

Here are five ways our Undergraduate Nursing program stands out from the rest.

1. Versatile and first-rate clinical experiences.

Students can choose from a wide array of fields to complete their clinical requirements, including pediatric care, obstetrics, and critical care.

Each clinical rotation lasts a full semester to ensure students are fully equipped to practice in their chosen areas of care.

Unlike many Undergraduate Nursing programs, Clarkson College gives students the option to complete a clinical rotation in the summer to accelerate their progress in the program.

2. Options for experienced and beginning nurses.

Whether you have some education and work experience in the nursing field or you’re just starting out, Clarkson College has a Bachelor’s degree option for you.

Our traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed for students entirely new to the nursing field.

For licensed practical nurses and registered nurses looking to advance their degrees, Clarkson College offers the LPN–BSN and RN–BSN program options.

3. #1 in Nebraska for board pass rates.

More than 96 percent of Clarkson College graduates pass their nursing licensure exam on the first attempt—higher than any other Nursing program in the state of Nebraska.  This above-average pass rate is a testament to the high-quality education students receive.

4. Flexibility with enrollment.

Many Undergraduate Nursing programs limit start dates to once or twice per year. At Clarkson College, you can begin your program in the spring, summer or fall semesters.

5. Transfer and accelerated degree options.

Clarkson College has articulation agreements with Southeast Community College, Metropolitan Community College and Western Nebraska Community College that make it possible to complete your BSN degree in as few as seven semesters.

Various transfer options also exist. Your advisor will customize your degree plan based on any applicable credits you previously earned to ensure you are on the educational track ideal and most efficient for you.
