More than ever, we are dedicated to those who have a calling to serve their communities.
With the evolving public health situation, we have moved our BSN degree program to an online learning platform in order to continue supporting our student’s educational goals. You can now start any of our 3-year campus programs online until it’s safe to transition back to campus.
