The College offers Associate of Science in Nursing Degree, Associate of Applied Science Degree in Respiratory Care and Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiography, Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences Degree, Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree, and Master of Science in Nursing Degree.
Students enrolling in our two-year Associate of Science in Nursing degree program are eligible to apply for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure at the completion of the program, which includes coursework in pharmacology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology and life span nursing. For students already certified as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), we offer advanced placement into our program.
We offer three different options within the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Trinity College. Depending on prior education and eligibility, students have the option to enroll in our accelerated (BSN-A), basic (BSN-B), or completion (BSN-C) programs. All our programs accentuate a high level of professionalism and clinical experience for our students.
The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences Degree is a full or part-time course of study designed for students with a previous Associate Degree in Radiography or Respiratory Care to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Sciences (BSHS). Graduates of diploma programs or other allied health professions may be eligible for admission into the BSHS program. The BSHS program builds upon previous education and aims to broaden the skillset of the allied health professional.
Graduates function as collaborative members within the health care team. Knowledge of leadership and management, health provider systems, communication, critical thinking, legal-ethical, and teaching-learning principles, evidence-based practice, and accounting, are integrated into the BSHS curriculum.
Graduates of the BSHS program are prepared to demonstrate the knowledge, proficiency, and cultural competence of an educated person, including the ability to synthesize general and professional education into clinical practice. The program reinforces accountability for lifelong learning and professional career development.
An Associate of Applied Science in Radiography will enable you to assist physicians in diagnosing illness or injury through skilled image replication. Students must use problem solving skills and technical adaptation to achieve clear and accurate medical imaging results. Radiographers must have a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology and radiographic technique.
As one of our health science degree programs, the Associate of Applied Science in Respiratory Care focuses on educating students to care for patients with cardiopulmonary disorders that affect the cardiac and respiratory systems. Students with this degree can work in areas ranging from emergency departments and hospitals to laboratories and clinics.
The MSN program is designed to prepare leaders in nursing education and health care systems who demonstrate cultural sensitivity in their decision-making and collaboration with other members of the professional health care team. Graduates will be prepared to mentor other team members and assume accountability for quality care outcomes as well as to foster best practices and effectively facilitate the translation of evidence into practice.
Master’s-prepared nurses use concepts and theories from nursing and related disciplines to improve the environment in which health care is delivered.
