Earning a BSN means you’ll have advanced nursing knowledge and expanded professional skills to excel in a global and increasingly complex healthcare system. Nurses with a BSN qualify for more jobs1 and earn higher salaries2 than associate degree nurses.
The mission of the ACE Department of Nursing is to educate and inspire nursing students to become exceptional healthcare providers, educators, and leaders who use forward thinking, evidence-based innovation, and collaboration to transform health outcomes, organizations, and systems within a global society. We have highly qualified and experienced staff and faculty to support our nursing program. An assistant provost of health care professions, department chair, curriculum director, and several faculty members oversee the department.
