Few careers are as satisfying, challenging, and in-demand as nursing. Through Lebanon Valley College's bachelor of science in nursing degree program, you'll get the training to think like a nurse. That means learning how to make evidence-based clinical judgments while also advocating for the individual needs of patients and their families.
LVC’s nursing program combines in-depth technical and scientific studies with the humanities and social sciences courses so you can build the soft skills that define the best nurses.
The baccalaureate degree in nursing at Lebanon Valley College is pursuing initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (www.ccneaccreditation.org). Applying for accreditation does not guarantee that accreditation will be granted.

In your first two years, you’ll develop core skills like clinical judgment, written communication, intercultural competence, quantitative reasoning, applied knowledge, and problem-solving. In your third and fourth years, you’ll dive into nursing-specific courses that focus on theory, technology, and research. Need-based departmental scholarships are available.
