Hiram College began offering a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program in the fall of 2007, under the Founding Nursing Program Director, Dr. Davina J. Gosnell, with the goal of educating a new generation of health professionals engaged in a program of study embedded in the liberal arts and educated to become critical thinkers, competent providers of care and leaders of professional nursing. Hiram's Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Program is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
The purpose of the Hiram College BSN program is to prepare students for entry into the health care profession. This unique education produces students who think critically and participate as leaders in the delivery of health and nursing care. Students become clinically competent, ethically grounded, and socially and culturally responsible.
The liberal arts tradition at Hiram prepares students to think well and with discipline. This tradition, grounded in the understanding that knowledge is interrelated and interdisciplinary, develops keen and critical observers of how the world works. They see issues, alternatives, solutions, and aspects of life that more narrowly-trained minds do not.
These skills, combined with the knowledge and skills in the discipline of nursing, are essential to the preparation of those who serve as professional nurses.
