The Good

  • International Programs
  • Career and Professional Resources
  • Student Organizations

International Programs

The University of San Diego wants others to know that in a world of changing demographic patterns, emerging diseases, and mobile populations, the Hahn School of Nursing and Health and Science is dedicated to providing its students with a plethora of opportunities to gain awareness and knowledge. The school has two international missions currently:

  • Milot, Haiti, Hôpital Sacré Coeur
  • El Cercado, Dominican Republic

Career and Professional Resources

The Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science offers its students a Career and Professional Resource Center, which is useful for students looking for opportunities to enter the nursing field. Many other universities only have a generalized career resource center, so this specific feature is beneficial to students struggling to find job openings. 

Student Organizations

The Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science has a Graduate Nursing Student Association (GNSA) that helps promote interaction among graduate nursing students, faculty, alumni, and the nursing community. The GNSA will often sponsor activities that enhance professional growth and provide an atmosphere which members can exchange their ideas. 

The Bad

  • No Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

No Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

Probably the most significant downside to the University of San Diego’s Nursing program is the fact that a bachelor’s degree isn’t offered. The school offers master’s degree programs, PhD programs, and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs, but students will have to get their bachelor’s degree from another university. 

The Bottom Line

The University of San Diego offers plenty of experiences and features that students looking to graduate with their master’s, PhD, or DNP degree will need. The school has many opportunities to get to know others in the nursing industry and the career and resource center is great for those looking to enter a career right after graduating. 

Students looking to apply should note that the nursing program does not have a bachelor of science in nursing degree.
