Avila University is a private university in Kansas City, Missouri that offers a CCNE accredited BSN program. This four-year baccalaureate track is designed around four pillars: discover, understand, participate, and assume. "Discover" entails the understanding and appreciation of the human responses and varied perceptions of life experiences; "Understand" focuses on the comprehension of the nursing role in socially and globally responsible health care; "Participate" encourages teamwork to achieve optimal patient-centered care, and "Assume" addresses and prepares students for the prospective nursing roles that graduates will assume.
Avila's BSN program includes preparation in the liberal arts, behavioral, biological, and natural sciences, communication, technology, and inquiry based thinking. Furthermore, the program emphasizes the the values of caring and continuous professional development, and recognition of varied perceptions of and responses to life experiences that people encounter. Senior Avila Nursing Students complete a trauma simulation using the school's high fidelity simulators. Students may enroll in the program in the fall.
