Bradley’s nursing degrees give you confidence in your caregiver abilities through challenging classes and diverse clinical settings. You can enter Bradley’s direct-admit undergraduate programs with no college background, an RN or LPN. The 15-month accelerated degree enables you to switch careers if you have an undergraduate degree in another field. You also can earn graduate nursing degrees on campus or online.
Your training takes advantage of Peoria’s thriving medical community. With two major hospital systems, multiple county health department facilities, several nursing homes and numerous medical businesses in the area, you explore every medical niche in your clinicals. You start field experiences as a sophomore, which means you have extra time to find your preferred area. Graduate degrees also send you to clinicals shortly after class starts.
Faculty and clinical supervisors guide you through your experiences. They’re knowledgeable, friendly people who enjoy mentoring students on campus and online. As a result, you will leave Bradley with a strong network of professional connections.
Your training pays off when it’s time for licensure exams. Bradley nursing undergraduates typically have one of the nation’s highest pass rates on the NCLEX-RN exam. Graduate students also typically record high pass rates on their certification exams.
