The nursing degree provides a biblically-based nursing education for the purpose of preparing Christian men and women for service to the community, health care system, the church-at-large, and to the world. This program seeks to prepare competent nursing professionals who can practice Christian caring in a variety of cultures around the world. Clinical nursing experiences are provided with the cooperation of a variety of hospitals and agencies throughout the area. Graduates of the program will be eligible to apply to take the national licensure examination (NCLEX).
