Mission of the Department of Nursing
The mission of Freed-Hardeman University's Department of Nursing is to provide an excellent professional nursing education permeated with Christian values. Therefore, graduates are morally and spiritually prepared to give holistic nursing care to provide service to the individual, the home, the church, the community, and the world.
The Department of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and an RN-BSN program. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing curriculum is divided into two sections. The first section consists of general education content derived from the natural sciences, behavioral sciences, liberal arts, humanities, and Bible. The second section consists of nursing courses with content from the major nursing areas: introduction concepts of nursing, skills for healthcare professionals, care of adults, children, maternity patients, and the mentally, as well as physically, ill. Nursing care of all age groups, promotion and maintenance of health, prevention and detection of illness, and restoration for health are included. Clinical, simulation, and skills lab are included. Any student interested in nursing should focus on the pre-nursing course of study.
A second program is offered for RNs leading to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. It includes additional content from the natural sciences, behavioral sciences, liberal arts, humanities, Bible and nursing.
Nursing courses must be taken in sequence. Nursing courses involve lecture, independent learning experiences, and clinical components within the community. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all nursing courses taken in order to progress to the next semester of the nursing program.
