School of Nursing Mission
The mission of the RN to BSN program represents the mission of Bluefield College as a Christ-centered liberal arts college with the Baptist General Association of Virginia and reflects the tripartite nursing roles of teaching, community service, and research. Faculty are committed to implementing an excellent professional nursing program for registered nurses in serving students in the Southwestern Virginia region as well as those from other states to promote their intellectual, cultural, spiritual, and personal development. The program affords students the opportunity to obtain liberal arts/general education as the foundation upon which to build professional nursing education; congruent with national standards for professional nursing practice; preparation for professional development including graduate nursing education; lifelong learning, and service to God and the global society. Nursing graduates are prepared with the breadth and depth of professional nursing knowledge which reflects a commitment to serve their community with an enhanced focus on rural health care delivery.
