About Us

Why We’re Here

It’s the personal connection with students. Approaching education as Christians first, we’re able to talk about faith in all we do. But we don’t just talk about it, we carry it with us into the classroom lessons, office hour discussions and in-field experiences. We’re responsible for preparing the next generation so that nursing remains the most trusted profession. And we’re committed to making an exponential impact on our students, because it leads to exponential impact on their patients.
