BACHELOR OF SCIENCE, Nursing ScienceNursing
The Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing Science is an outreach program of the University of AlaskaAnchorage(UAA) School of Nursing. UAA and the UAF Community and Technical College work together to administer the program locally. Nursing theory and skills are taught through a combination of distance technologies, face-to-face classroom instruction, and skills laboratory. The program classrooms and learning laboratory are located at Community and Technical College (CTC), 604 Barnette Street. Further training and hands-on experience occurs at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital and other clinical sites in the community.

Students pursuing the baccalaureate degree in nursing science are provided both the theory and clinical base to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate health care to meet the needs of individuals, families, groups, and communities whose health status varies qualitatively and quantitatively.

The nursing program is approved by the Alaska Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
