Alcorn State University
Alcorn State University’s Cora S Balmat School of Nursing was founded in 1977, and has produced hundreds of entry-level and advanced practice nurses who are employed in a variety of health-care settings. The school offers undergraduate and graduate programs. ASU offers an ADN program, a BSN program, as well as a Master of Science in Nursing. All programs are accredited by the Board of Trustees of Institutions of Higher Learning State of Mississippi and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
The programs mission is three-pillared: teaching, scholarship, and service. ASU is committed to providing a robust education for future nurses, in order to prepare them as clinically competent and caring members of health care teams.
Unique is the faculty’s philosophy, which considers nursing both a science and an art, seeing it as an interdisciplinary role. Therefore, they focus on building knowledge from the humanities and the natural, psychological, sociological fields in addition to nursing sciences. Students may enroll in the fall, spring, or summer semesters.
