The Bachelor of Science program can equip graduates for advanced nursing opportunities in a variety of healthcare settings, including:

- Physician Offices
- Long-term care facilities
- Ambulatory Care
- Public Health settings
If you love working in the nursing field, but don’t have the Bachelor’s degree necessary to go as far as you’d like in this field, Briarcliffe’s Bachelor of Science degree could be just what you need to advance toward management and leadership opportunities, or to meet the requirements of certain states and employers.
We offer an accessible, high-quality undergraduate program designed to develop nurse leaders. The curriculum reflects the needs and current trends of our community, and is taught by instructors who are committed to education of the highest standards – while promoting scholarly activity and research that advances the scientific and theoretical foundation of nursing.
Everything we teach is industry-current and relevant so that you can immediately put what you learn in class into practice in your career. You can develop a strong foundation in collaboration, healthcare quality and safety issues, and evidence-based practices; and become familiar with today’s key nursing topics, such as the use and structure of the EHR (electronic health record) HIPAA, and information security.
This program is designed for nurses who have a diploma or an associate degree in Nursing, and hold the Registered Nurse (RN) license. With those credentials, you’re already on your way – so why not take the next step toward management and leadership opportunities in the field of nursing or set a foundation for earning a graduate degree.
Because this program is offered entirely online, whether you live far from our campus or want the flexibility to schedule your studies around your job or family responsibilities, you can work on your degree wherever you are, 24/7.
