The common subjects include: Chemistry, Psychology, Microbiology, Physics, Anatomy, Nutrition, Physiology, Nursing Principles, Behavioral Science and the practical aspect of nursing.

Once you graduate with a BSN degree, you have the option of pursuing your studies further by enrolling in an MSN Program or continuing your career as a registered nurse.
