Compassion in Action
USF nurses are leading the transition to more empathetic care.
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) prepares students for careers in nursing and qualifies them for continued academic and professional advancement as health professionals. At the Sacramento Campus, the BSN is offered in partnership with the Veteran Affairs Northern California Health Care System.
This two-year program is open to applicants who have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA, 30+ transferable credits, and completed the following courses prior to admission: Microbiology + Lab, Human Anatomy + Lab, Physiology + Lab, and General Psychology.
The more I talked to and worked with the veterans during my education, the more I realized why this program is special. Many of the veterans have such positive spirits, even when they’re in the hospital. It’s really rewarding to be able to care for, listen to, and talk with the veterans who have served our country. They have been through a lot more than most and have such a different perspective on the world. I’m inspired by this population and eager to use my nursing skills to promote their well-being."
