Traditional BSN

The Traditional BSN program is designed for students who want to pursue a career as a Registered Nurse. This four-year program welcomes students directly into the nursing program as freshmen.  Our highly respected, rigorous, and innovative  curriculum prepares students to become healthcare leaders after graduation.

Engaged Learning
A UD SON education includes service-learning, study abroad, community engagement, undergraduate research opportunities, and clinical experiences mentored by nurses in practice.

UD's Center for Simulation Innovation, Interdisciplinary Education, and Entrepreneurship (CSIIDEE) builds in students the clinical and decision-making skills necessary to take on a variety of mentored clinical experiences in the surrounding region.
