SEU Nursing Students

Department of Nursing

The Helen J. Streubert, Ed.D., Programs in Nursing at Saint Elizabeth University is committed to providing distinctive undergraduate (BSN) and graduate (MSN) nursing programs. At SEU, the BSN program consists of two options – the pre-licensure and RN to BSN – and the MSN program includes Nurse Educator and Nurse Leadership options.

SEU's nursing curriculum fosters the development of leadership in students in a spirit of service and social responsibility to others with emphasis on advocacy for patients, nursing profession and healthcare.

In support of the educational objectives, the SEU nursing students' learning experience includes a state-of-the-art clinical skills and diagnostics center, which includes a high-fidelity simulation lab consisting of 12 examination bays and a patient simulation room featuring an adjacent faculty observation area. Classes are held at our home campus as well as in a number of regional health centers and fit a professional work schedule.

We invite you to explore our nursing department website specific to each program and option.
