Hodges University News

Hodges University is pleased to announce that the Florida Board of Nursing has approved a Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) for the School of Health Sciences.

Dr. William Griz, dean of the School of Health Sciences, explained, “The mission of Hodges’ nursing program is to develop knowledgeable, caring, principled nurses with a commitment to excellence by delivering the highest quality, holistic care to diverse patient populations.”

The program has been developed cognizant of recommendations of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, The Future of Nursing (2010), which acknowledges the need for the nursing profession to take a leadership role to meet the demands of our dynamic health care system.

Hodges’ nursing program will consist of two parts:

  • Earning an Associate in Science degree in biomedical sciences, which consists of four semesters of full-time study in the nursing track.
  • Earning a Bachelor of Science in nursing, which consists of four full-time, consecutive semesters focused on the art and science of nursing. This portion of the degree program is scheduled to start its first cohort of students in January 2018.

The first informational session regarding the BSN program will be held August 22, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. Additional sessions will be scheduled and posted to Hodges University’s website in the coming months.
