Beginning this fall, the School of Nursing at Mount AloysiusCollege will begin enrolling students into a new 3.5-year traditional Bachelorof Science in Nursing program.

Part of the underlying premise to the new program is to meetthe goal to increase the number of nurses entering the workforce with abaccalaureate degree.  “With theaccelerated nature of the nursing course work, this program is a great choicefor students straight out of high school to individuals who already hold abachelor’s degree in another field. As a result, this program is intense, andyou have to be ready to hit the ground running,” said Julie Luetschwager,Ph.D., MSN, RN, dean of the School of Nursing.

“Overall, we want our nurses to be evidence-based clinicaldecision makers, and we want to also ensure they are making strides in theirprofessional behaviors, interactions within the profession of nursing, andwithin interdisciplinary teams so they continue to contribute to the communityand the nursing profession.”

The Mount Aloysius campus features a high-tech simulationcenter as a part of the new Nursing Resource & Simulation Center (NRSC).The four-bed simulation nursing unit is located in the new addition to PierceHall. In the simulation center, students participate in experiential learningin a safe, structured environment. Using life-like CAE computerized mannequinsand other simulation equipment, students learn nursing interventions to providehigh quality, safe care for patients.

In line with an increased program focus on mentalhealth/addictions and gerontology, new partnerships with area community andhealthcare agencies will expand BSN students’ opportunity to work and promotehealth and wellness with vulnerable populations. One of those partnerships iswith Pyramid Healthcare.

The new pre-licensure BSN program has been granted InitialApproval by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.
