*These graduate-level courses give students nine graduate credits that will apply to the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree requirements at Thomas Edison State University upon acceptance to that degree program. Students planning on advancing their degree into the MSN program must get a B or better in these courses. Accelerated BSN students may apply to the MSN program after successful completion of the BSN program and passing the NCLEX-RN®.

To be met upon completion of the BSN degree program

  1. Integrate current knowledge, ethical principles, evidence-based findings, and clinical reasoning to direct nursing practice decisions.
  2. Apply principles of cultural humility and cultural sensitivity to interpersonal relationships and client/population-focused care.
  3. Participate in interprofessional collaboration to promote optimal client outcomes.
  4. Explore the effects of health policy on the financing, organization, and delivery of healthcare to individuals and populations.
  5. Employ a range of information technologies and ethical standards to acquire knowledge, manage data, communicate information, and guide and validate nursing practice.
  6. Demonstrate leadership skills and professionalism based on an understanding of the multidimensional role of the professional nurse.
Simulation and Skills Lab

Each hybrid course includes time spent in the skills and simulation lab. Our high-fidelity Simulation and Skills Lab prepares students to think critically, reinforce theory concepts, and enhance clinical decision-making skills in a safe environment. We have several different types of simulation rooms, including a maternity and a homecare/community room, that give students a variety of nursing experiences.

During labs and simulations, students use what they have learned in the classroom to care for realistic and interactive mannequins. These practice experiences are recorded and provide students with feedback and a chance to reflect on their nursing practices. 

Clinical Sites

Experiences are held one to two days a week for up to 12 hours, at a variety of regional University-affiliated acute care facilities and non-acute care organizations.

In order to be eligible for entry into these facilities, all clinical compliance requirements must be met.
