ABOUT THE BSN PROGRAM
Jessup University’s Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree program conforms and adheres to the tenets, requirements and beliefs of Jessup University (see Jessup Statement of Faith and Community Covenant). In the past century, the development and expansion of medical and health services, the changing patterns of modern life, and the advances in technology have not only expanded the scope of nursing education but have also made nursing a more highly complex profession that calls for a deeper focus on the art and science of caring. Jessup endeavors to develop nurse leaders who have all the core competencies for entry into practice that meet this complexity with knowledge, skill, compassion, and technological expertise. Jessup will develop nurses who will understand the dynamics of the human condition, both physically, emotionally, spiritually, and who will be grounded in a professional identity that calls for delivery of excellent skills applications and individualized compassionate care.
Nursing is more than just a scientific discipline that is involved with the diagnosis and treatment of potential and actual responses to illness and disease. Jessup believes it is a dynamic profession that should take a holistic approach to healing and healthcare. Nurses should always have the goal of promoting comfort, healing, and wholeness by also aiding patients to attain the best possible level of self-care. Nurses must be accountable to patients, families, and communities. They must be aware of the diverse and underserved populations, their social determinants of care, and their health, financial and social challenges. Jessup believes that nursing functions at its best when there is collaboration with other health care professionals who also advocate and treat patients with respect, dignity, and confidentiality.
