The purpose of the professional nursing program is to prepare students for entry into
professional practice and provide an academic foundation for graduate study. The
community-based baccalaureate program provides competencies, knowledge, values and
roles that prepare professional nurses to provide high quality care to diverse populations, in
and across all environments. The program also prepares students for advanced study and to
value life-long learning. The baccalaureate program in Nursing provides for a balanced study
of natural and social sciences in addition to humanities within the content of professional
education to promote critical thinking, effective communication, caring, respect, and concern
for individuals, groups, and communities.
The Liberal Studies Core Curriculum is one reflection of Gannon University's commitment to
its Catholic identity. The Core's design offers students a defined, integrated, shared
experience as the foundation for their undergraduate program.
