B.A.S. in Interior Design

B.S. in Nursing
Currently, the United States is facing a nurse shortage—particularly a shortage of nurses who hold a B.S. degree. In fact, by 2023, there will be a 22 percent increase in demand for nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree. To help meet this demand, Seminole State opened its Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in spring 2018.
This program allows students to continue their studies toward a BSN while working, and it offers a wide range of opportunities for those who want to begin or advance a career in nursing.
The curriculum builds on the knowledge gained in the ASN program, with coursework focused on a wide range of topics, including leadership and management, community health, pharmacology, research, patient-centered care of vulnerable populations, and health policy.
Programs created with student success in mind
To create and evolve all its programs, Seminole State regularly meets with community advisors in every industry to see what is currently in demand. The college then tailors each program to include courses that equip students with the skills that are most sought after in their industry. When you graduate from Seminole State, you can rest assured that you will have the most in-demand skills needed to succeed in your field.
Everything you need to succeed in one place
Each program at Seminole State has its own designated advisor. Each advisor goes above and beyond a typical college advisor by providing all the specialized and personalized services that their students may need. That means that you can get everything you need for admissions, financial aid, advising, and registration all in one place.
Small, flexible, and convenient classes
Students get to enjoy small classes—each class has no more than 30 students. That means that you get to build relationships with your peers and receive close attention from your professor, whose main goal is to help you succeed.
While some programs have in-person classes, others have classes that are 100 percent online, so that you can attend from anywhere—making it easy and stress-free to earn your degree without having to make significant lifestyle changes.
Some programs even offer hybrid options, where students attend some classes in person and some online.
A staff of experienced academics and experts
Unlike many colleges, Seminole State is not a research school. Every class is taught by a professor, not a teaching assistant, 25 percent of the faculty have doctorate degrees, and all professors come from a strong background of both academics and industry experience.
Moreover, since Seminole State offers such small classes, the professors and advisors are able to communicate on a regular basis to continually improve classes and help students succeed.
