Holy Names University’s Generic BSN Program
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) pre-licensure program at HNU prepares students for professional nursing practice in a variety of settings including hospitals, community clinics, long-term care, home care, and community health agencies. Registered Nurses are highly in-demand. Estimates show that there are nearly twice the number of jobs available as there are nurses to fill them.* Many Bay Area programs are impacted and hold long waiting lists. To meet this need for nursing education, HNU has introduced a new, Generic BSN program.
