The University of Providence School of Health Professions has three programs geared toward undergraduates – the Bachelor of Science in Nursing, the Registered Nursing to Bachelor of Science in Nursing, also known as the RN to BSN, and the Surgical Technologists program.
In the Undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, students complete all required nursing and other coursework in person at the University. The last three semesters or 54 credits of the nursing major is completed on an intensive full-time basis in Lewistown, also the locale where students will complete their clinical learning. This means that students are not eligible to be on athletic teams, even practice; are required to live in Lewistown; and must not work in any outside employment.
Students who may have a Bachelor’s in another field may wish to apply for this program as an accelerated BSN. This means, if the student has the required prerequisites, they only need to complete the three intense semesters in Lewistown.
The University of Providence RN-BSN program is a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Completion Program offered to licensed, practicing Registered Nurses. The program prepares graduates to be a leader in healthcare. A graduate of our program is a life-long learner who will enhance the profession of nursing by providing evidence-based practice that is population centered, and grounded in spiritual, ethical and compassionate care.
Achieving a BSN will provide many career opportunities now and in the future. Most organizations are hiring BSN prepared nurses for all positions and we want to ensure students are market ready.
Surgical technologists are important members of the operating room team who work closely with surgeons, surgical nurses, and anesthesia providers to ensure high-quality surgical patient care. Surgical Technologists assist surgeons before, during, and after procedures requiring the Surgical Technologist to pay close attention to detail, remain calm under pressure, and stay focused.
Students who complete all required Surgical Technology coursework delivered online and in a skills lab will Graduate with their A.A.S. Degree in Surgical Technology along with sitting for the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) National Certification Exam.
