Aim Of Programme
The primary aim of the Bachelor of Science Nursing Degree Programme at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College is to prepare graduates for entry level nursing practice in today’s dynamic, diverse health-care environments. This undergraduate, academic degree programme also prepares graduates to function in many diverse roles as they assume a professional career in nursing, in addition to serving as the basis for graduate studies.The programme is designed to provide students with a broad-based, comprehensive and essential foundation in the art, science, principles and techniques of nursing as well as the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes not only for general nursing, but also to assume leadership and management roles in nursing.
The programme is organized into theory and practice, consists of one hundred thirty-five (135) credits, is delivered over nine (9) semesters and requires four (4) years of full-time study to complete. The theoretical aspect of the curriculum is heavily grounded in courses from the arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, natural and physical sciences as well as a core of nursing courses. An equally supportive clinical component provides learning experiences and opportunities for demonstration and laboratory simulations, as well as clinical practice in a variety of hospital and community-based health care settings as students develop their competencies and proficiency in clinical nursing practice. The curriculum also focuses on eight (8) major concepts namely health promotion, wellness-illness continuum, self-care, critical thinking, communication, nursing process, evidence-based practice and lifelong learning. Emphasis is therefore placed on these concepts throughout the teaching learning experiences and delivery of the programme.
Four Years Full-Time (Applicants Should Be At Least 17 Years Old At The Time Of Admission)
- Five CSEC subjects (General Proficiency Grades I-III) and/or GCE O'Level/BGCSE subjects (Grades A-C) which must include English Language, Biology/Integrated Science/Human and Social Biology, Mathematics and two other approved subjects AND Two double Units at CAPE (one subject from Mathematics, Physics, Biology, and one subject from any of the other subject areas, as specified by the Nursing Council of Jamaica).
