Bachelor of Science in Nursing

In this program, the art and science of nursing is developed through a variety of methods. You will gain practical experiences in nursing laboratories, acute care, and community agencies in the region.
Unit Clerk Certificate
As part of GPRC's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fall 2020 Unit Clerk cohort will be offered online only. All students who have applied, been admitted, or registered for remote instruction will be contacted. If you have not yet applied for the Unit Clerk Program and wish to take it online in October, please ensure you apply no later than the deadline of August 30.
Unit Clerks play a vital role in hospitals and clinics by managing the flow of information. Students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for a future in the health care field through practical courses such as medical terminology, office procedures, and pharmacology.
