College of Health Professions


Department of Nursing

Nursing is both an art and a science with an evolving body of specialized knowledge derived from nursing research, as well as from the synthesis of knowledge from related disciplines. Nursing, independently or collaboratively, guides and influences the behavior of others in their efforts toward optimizing the health status of individuals, families, groups and communities.

Towson offers a program in professional nursing leading to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing as well as a Master of Science degree program in nursing.

The curriculum, designed for basic and registered nurse students, prepares the graduate to accept responsibility and accountability for the care of clients and families in a variety of health care settings, to function in beginning leadership roles, and to be consumers of and participants in nursing research. Students are also provided with the foundation for graduate study in nursing.

The master's program in nursing prepares graduates to assume key roles in the delivery of health care to individuals and families within a community-based nursing practice. Options are available in Nursing Education or Clinical-Administration Transition.

The nursing program is approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing, and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Basic students graduating from the Nursing major are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
