A Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from Siena Heights
The Siena Heights University Nursing Program is modeled after Florence Nightingale’s Christian spirit of service and compassion. In fact, the Adrian Dominican Sisters, the congregation who founded Siena Heights, first arrived in Michigan in the 19th century to establish a hospital for injured railroad workers and the poor.
At Siena Heights, we believe in the dignity and worth of every human being. That philosophy is embedded into every aspect of SHU’s Nursing Bachelor Degree Program. When designing the Pre-Licensure Nursing program, Siena nursing faculty drew upon years of teaching expertise and wisdom, as well as national nursing standards. That means the courses are practical and relevant to today’s health care professional.
SHU Nursing is a second admit program, meaning students must apply at the start of their sophomore year to be accepted into the Nursing Program. Students must have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA in all courses and a grade of an A or a B in all science courses to apply to enter the Nursing Program. Students are invited to apply to the Nursing Program based upon earning high grades and maintaining excellent character.
At Siena Heights, students have three semesters to take all pre-requisites, and once admitted to the Nursing bachelor major, five semesters of nursing coursework. Students earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree as a Siena Heights Nurse.
