If you're interested in a profession where you can make a difference, then nursing may be right for you.  Nursing is a challenging and rewarding career on the front-line of patient care.

The Nursing program combines the art and science of nursing to provide a holistic approach to patient care.  Registered nurses utilize their knowledge and compassion in managing the care of patients in a variety of healthcare settings. Graduates of the nursing program are eligible to make application for licensure to become a Registered Nurse (RN) by taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).

The nursing program at St. Luke's College offers a program of excellence providing graduates with the skills and knowledge to function as beginning nurse generalists.
