Bachelor of Science in Nursing Overview

If you’re looking for a meaningful way to make a living while helping others, and you like an active job where you meet all sorts of people, nursing can be a rewarding career. With a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN), you’ll learn modern nursing skills and get training in techniques that can help you succeed in this vital field.

The BSN program at the School of Nursing and Health Sciences (SNHS) at Alliant offers two of the fastest paths in the state of Arizona to earning your BSN degree; one if you have no college credits and another if you have completed your general education requirements:

  • If you have no previous college credits, your program will take eight semesters over two years and nine months. 
  • If you’ve fulfilled your general education requirements, your program will be taught over six semesters and will take two years to complete. 

Both paths are taught on campus in Arizona and offer general education and non-clinical courses online. The BSN will provide you with the education and experience needed to prepare you to sit for the NCLEX exam to earn a license as a registered nurse (RN).

Program Highlights

Hands-On, Real-World Training

The school has launched a state-of-the-art simulation center and lab in Phoenix, Arizona, which allows for hands-on practice through small class sizes, six simulation bays, and eight clinical beds. Small class sizes mean you’ll get plenty of time with your teachers, all of whom have experience in the field. 

Innovative Technology

When you enroll in the program, you’ll receive an electronic tablet pre-loaded with all the textbooks, test prep, modern nursing apps, and other resources you’ll need for your program. This is much like the technology nurses use every day.

Alliant is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The program curriculum aligns with the very latest American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials and focuses on helping you develop vital nursing competencies.

Degree Information

Nurses are team players, so in the program, you’ll have the opportunity to practice with other healthcare professionals. The BSN degree program takes advantage of the latest technologies in patient care to prepare you for the job. When you begin your program, you’ll receive an electronic tablet that is pre-loaded with a widely-used nursing app, much like what you will use as a nurse in the field. The tablet is also loaded with all the textbooks and other study materials you’ll need to complete the program. 

So that you fully understand the concepts and skills taught throughout your program, rather than extensive memorization, you’ll learn to think critically and use clinical reasoning on the job. You’ll also learn to collaborate with other healthcare providers to ensure the best possible outcomes for your patients. 


Student Learning Outcomes

As a graduate of the BSN program, you’ll be trained to: 

  • Apply the clinical decision-making process to provide culturally sensitive, patient-centered care 
  • Collaborate with patients, families, and other members in the planning, coordination, and provision of safe, competent healthcare
  • Promote patient and staff safety following the process of quality improvement within complex systems of healthcare
  • Apply the best evidence and innovative technologies to enhance communication, knowledge development, and clinical judgment
  • Demonstrate leadership and professionalism when managing care for diverse patients across the lifespan and continuum of care
  • Integrate professional values, legal requirements, and ethical principles into nursing practice
