Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree

The purpose of the nursing major is for the students to learn to apply both scriptural and scientific methods to nursing services rendered to individuals, families, and communities. The accomplishment of this dual goal encompasses biblical concepts about the relationships between God and man, man and fellow man, and man and the physical universe.

The baccalaureate degree in nursing at Pensacola Christian College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (ccneaccreditation.org).

  • implement the nursing process and evidence-based practice;
  • establish therapeutic relationships with the individual, the family, and the healthcare team;
