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, 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?

 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

Nursing

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program reflects the college’s commitment to academic excellence by preparing highly qualified nursing professionals to serve in a variety of global health environments while modeling Christian compassion and caring. Crown College nursing graduates rank high as first-time test takers, passing the NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Examination), a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States, within weeks of graduation. As a registered nurse with a B.S.N. degree, Crown graduates experience a wide variety of career possibilities, including specialization, and are positioned to continue their education at the graduate level.

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.

Mentoring Opportunities

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.
