New 33-Month program is a blend of residential, hybrid, and distance education.

CNI College announced the addition of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to its programming. The 33-month program will be delivered in a blended format, with clinical practicums throughout. Students will engage in coursework through residential, hybrid, and distance education. The BSN Program will prepare students to be well-rounded nursing professionals through a combination of general education and core nursing courses.

The concepts that guide the BSN curriculum in preparing students for professional nursing roles include: the nursing process, evidence-based practice nursing, therapeutic care and communication, transformative teaching and learning methodologies, and interprofessional collaboration in healthcare; this is in congruence with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the Essentials for Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN), Accreditation of Distance Learning standards, Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), the Alliance for Nursing Accreditation of Distance Education, and the California Board of Registered Nursing guidelines.

“We are thrilled to offer the BSN degree at CNI College,” said Colleen Buffington, Co-owner of CNI College. “The BSN program curriculum combines the biological and social sciences to develop a nursing graduate who will administer client-centered care by applying critical thinking, holistic clinical reasoning and decision-making, and evidence-based practice. The program features innovative learning concepts and methodologies, endorsed by prominent accreditation and governing bodies in nursing education. The BSN curriculum progresses the learning of knowledge, skills, and appropriate nursing professional attitudes, from foundational concepts to an advanced level prepared for graduate studies.”
