Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The applied health science degree is designed to prepare graduates for work in a health-related field and for further education and training at the post-baccalaureate level. The AHS degree consists of six separate specializations which have common BG Perspective, core, and supportive requirements but differing specialization courses. The diversified curriculum provides a strong background in the basic sciences and emphasizes the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Nursing specialization
The nursing specialization is open only to students who have completed an accredited associate degree program in Nursing and have passed the NCLEX-RN test. Those courses which comprise the technical or clinical practice component of the associate degree in nursing may be used to satisfy the specialization requirements of the baccalaureate degree.
