NURSING

Overview

Qualified nurses are in high demand. Nursing is at the top of the Labor Department’s list for job growth. Hospitals are increasingly hiring highly educated nurses with a bachelor of science in nursing (B.S.N.) degree.

The Dordt College nursing program will prepare you for this demanding job market. Students in our innovative program are eligible to take the licensing test in three or three and a half years and, with one additional year, can earn a B.S.N. degree.

By attending Dordt College for a bachelor’s degree, nurses gain a strong background in the sciences, current health care issues, cross-cultural care, and preparation for clinical nursing. At Dordt College, you will find instructors who are committed to helping nurses develop Christian character, professional values, strong core competencies, and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Employment surveys done six months after graduation show that students who have completed Dordt’s accredited B.S.N. degree have a 100 percent employment rate.

When you enter the workforce, you will have learned to care for patients in a way that demonstrates your Christian commitment to serving others.
