The overall aim of the Bluefield College Master of Science in Nursing program is to prepare competent, caring, qualified, and reflective nurses to lead during a health care revolution, educate faculty who can teach the nurses needed to provide health care for the country, and provide nurse practitioners to care for the rural and needy populations.
Our MSN prepares registered nurses to either practice the art and science of delivering care to rural populations or to educate future academicians and nursing leaders. We recognize that MSN-prepared nurses may practice, teach, and influence the health care needs of our populations, and nurse educators and nursing leaders prepare the nurse to practice at all levels of nursing education and leadership. This transformation is a collaboration of blending all health care professions and politics with movement from the grassroots level.
