Hardin Hall, Tillman Hall, and Godfrey Hall were built between 1890 and 1898 and remain in use by the university.

Nursing students may enroll in the traditional BSN, RN to BSN, accelerated BSN, or MSN programs. The programs are all accredited by the CCNE. After graduating, most students find jobs in the nursing field within several months. In fact, the university has a nearly 100% job placement rate within three months of graduation. The traditional BSN program offers hands-on training through clinical labs in a state-of-the-art simulation skills center.

The RN to BSN program is offered entirely online, providing a flexible option for registered nurses seeking a BSN.
