A Global Education

By integrating the concept of Christian service into all of our instruction, graduates learn how to care for both the physical and spiritual needs of their patients. Basing our nursing practice on biblical principles, students learn how to minister to dying patients, resolve current moral issues faced by the healthcare team, and address the needs of the uninsured while learning what it means to be a Christian servant.

Part of this is experienced through global education—an important component of the BSN curriculum. We require an intercultural experience that gives students the opportunity to travel overseas at a reduced rate and provide nursing care to the citizens of various communities.
