This major prepares students to become professional practitioners in areas of health promotion and maintenance, illness care, and rehabilitation. After earning the bachelor of science degree in nursing, students are qualified to take the registered nurse examination for licensure by the State Board of Nursing. The Nursing major is accredited by The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), 61 Broadway, New York, NY 10006; 212-363-5555, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), and approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. Students are admitted as freshmen into the major.

Full-time students are assigned to a rotation plan for scheduling clinical nursing courses at University Park campus and clinical settings in various locations. The rotation plan may require a summer session at the end of the sophomore year. Students may be required to reside at locations other than University Park campus in some semesters.

Students must carry liability insurance and have an annual health examination, and be certified in adult and child CPR when enrolled in any clinical courses. Students also are responsible for their own transportation to clinical settings and may need the use of a car. Criminal background and child abuse history clearances are required.

For the B.S. degree in Nursing, a minimum of 120 credits is required.
