Nursing

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 Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is a uniquely designed program that combines the intensive skills training with the broad knowledge required of Registered Nurses in practice.  The program uses a concept-based curriculum to organize content, reduce subject matter saturation, and to reinforce patterns and relationships.  A three- tiered approach is used to develop the students’ nursing practice skills: a hospital-like laboratory setting, a state of the art simulation studio, and by providing direct patient care in over 25 area hospitals, clinics, schools, and community settings.  Students are exposed to a broad venue of practice settings, work cultures, and diverse professionals in rural to urban, small to large, acute to chronic care facilities.

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 discipleship by serving others.
