Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania's Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing Program

Recognized as a leading accredited undergraduate and graduate level nursing program, BU prepares students for a wide range of careers in critical care, obstetrics, pediatrics, rehabilitation, trauma, home care, and other clinical specialties, informatics and case management and additionally offers the increasingly valuable path toward a master of science in nursing through its related graduate study program.

BU's Department of Nursing offers many different options to pursue or advance your nursing degree including: B.S.N., R.N. to B.S.N., R.N. to M.S.N., and M.S.N. with specialties in Family or Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Community Health, Nursing Administration, and Nurse Anesthesia.

Geisinger partners with BU's nursing program

Geisinger Medical Center (GMC) has announced it's expanded partnership with Bloomsburg University to provide bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in nursing. The program is designed to increase the number of local nurses who have earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) to meet the health care needs of patients.

This partnership will allow for an increased enrollment in BU’s existing BSN program, with courses offered on the GMC campus beginning in the fall 2013, and offer opportunities for further collaboration through research and practice. The MSN nurse anesthesia option is a collaboration between BU and GMC and the expansion of other MSN options, such as the nurse practitioner program, will meet the increasing demand for primary care providers. The expanded partnership between GMC and Bloomsburg University reflects the findings of an Institute of Medicine report on the future of nursing.
