This is an exciting and challenging time for the nursing profession. The Institute of Medicine Report on the Future of Nursing (released October 2010) and the Affordable Care Act of 2010 underscore the importance of nurses to the nation’s health and to controlling the rising cost of health care. Nurses practicing in today’s environment face the challenges of diminished resources, growing complexity in both patient care and the health care system, and increased demand from a diverse public.
Educational preparation at the baccalaureate and graduate levels provides nurses with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet these challenges and find satisfaction in their chosen nursing path. Kean University offers excellent programs for students interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a trans-culturally focused Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) in clinical management, school nursing, or community/public health nursing.
