1 This program is designed to fit the needs of students interested in science in a broad sense. The foundation of the program consists in the general introductory courses in mathematics, chemistry, biology and physics. Intermediate and advanced courses in astronomy, chemistry, biology or physics will be selected to meet the particular needs and interests of the individual student. The approval of the final program of study rests with a committee consisting of the chairs of the departments The Benedictine Nursing program is based on a framework of the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).
