Benefits of the Program

Many employers require that nurses are earning or have earned their Bachelor’s with a major in Nursing degree as a prerequisite for employment. TWU’s baccalaureate level of study provides increased emphasis on leadership and management, research, wellness (health promotion/disease prevention), and community health nursing. These skills are considered invaluable in nursing today and will therefore increase your marketability.
