It is with great pleasure and a sense of excitement that I welcome you to the University of Bridgeport School of Nursing (UBSN). The nursing program is committed to excellence and innovation and the students in this inaugural class will forever be recognized as trailblazers in creating the history of nursing at the University.
As you either begin your journey into professional nursing by entering the traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, or continue your journey in professional nursing through the RN to BSN program, UBSN will build on a rich history of academic success. Students will experience an innovative, evidence-based healthcare education that prepares a professional nurse to provide leadership in improving healthcare for a global society. Students will experience faculty who believe nursing is a unique and integrated profession and who value humanistic, safe, quality care and demonstrate an advocacy for those in their care.
A state-of-the-art laboratory and simulation center will await you and provide a safe, controlled environment to master the skills necessary to excel in clinical experiences. The medium and high fidelity mannequins will allow you to use your knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for safe nursing practice. Clinical experiences will be provided that will strengthen your ability to provide patient-centered care for all ages.
You will recognize the contagious excitement as soon as you arrive on campus and enter the School of Nursing and begin the pathway to your nursing career. It will not be difficult to see that we are all committed to providing a challenging nursing education as we live our mission to both educate you and encourage your service to the community. You will appreciate our focus on the student as an individual and the personal attention you will receive in your educational process. It gives us a sense of pride to be a part of assisting you in achieving your professional goals.
Embrace every opportunity UBSN offers you.
UB Nursing…it’s your pathway to success!
