How Your Program Is Unique:
It is an ideal mix of Christian education with nursing skills and service. We are a unique college with a unique nursing program. I bring excellence to the classroom by offering the best evidence-based curriculum that prepares students as professional generalists. Drawing on my background, professional experience, and faith, students witness how Christ authors our profession and gives them a foundation for an amazing lifelong ministry caring for fellow human beings created in His image.
Favorite Bible Verse:
