The Division of Nursing was established in 1969 with a program of studies leading to the bachelor's degree in nursing.

The College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences Nursing department is proud to offer undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. The undergraduate nursing department offers three programs of study at the baccalaureate level – Basic, LPN to BSN, and RN-to-BSN. The Graduate Nursing program is designed for registered nurses who wish to further advance their nursing career. The Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) track is a traditional program that prepares nurses to achieve the core competencies required of the family nurse practitioner. Upon successful completion of the graduation requirements and the necessary years of full-time teaching experience in an academic role, graduates are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) Family Nurse Practitioner Certification Examination, or the National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) Examination depending on their program concentration.
