BS in Nursing (BSN) Program Outcomes

The mission of the UMaine BSN program is to provide leadership to improve health care and advance the discipline of nursing through education, scholarship and service.  School of Nursing faculty and students value participation in the broader academic community which fosters excellence, self-reflection, accountability, respect for diversity and lifelong learning.

BSN program outcomes are consistent with professional standards and they are congruent with the program’s mission, goals, and objectives.

  1. Provide patient-centered care which represents the patients’ preferences, values, and needs within the context of their families, communities and the health care delivery system.
  2. Demonstrate professional behaviors in the practice of nursing.
  3. Demonstrate integration of knowledge, skills and professional attitudes through the use of clinical evidence and reasoning.
