Christian care + compassion
Our mission is to prepare highly qualified individuals for professional practice in a diverse range of healthcare settings. We won’t just help you get certified as a nurse with a Christian Nursing degree, we’ll help you carry on Jesus’ ministry to help those in need. Building on a strong, biblically-based education, we want nursing students to go deeper into our mission to care for communities both locally and globally. Are you up to the challenge?
“One of the things I have loved about Crown’s nursing department is the education I have received that emphasizes serving and caring for others with a Christian worldview. It has not only given me the skills and knowledge to be a confident nurse, it has helped to develop my faith.”

Meet Lucina, the simulator lady. Our new, high-fidelity manikin will help students achieve their full potential. With lifelike simulations, future nurses will learn how the human body operates and how to serve patients best. There’s nothing like hands-on learning.
Put your skills to use before you graduate. We partner with local hospitals and agencies to provide supervised work experience in medical settings. Clinicals will prepare students for real-life scenarios in a safe environment while giving opportunities to share Jesus’ love with others.
Learning in the classroom is one of the core ways that you can grow as a person. However, we believe classrooms can only go so far. That is why each student has the opportunity to connect with a faculty or staff member to talk about class, life, and Jesus. Because learning is more than just knowledge, it is experiencing life-changing relationships.
